Exterminating roaches

I just moved and the managing company sent maintenance with Raid to spray the apartment for roaches.The roaches crawl on walls ..I just want to move out.
Anyway, in my humble opinion, there are better products and spraying Raid might not be that effective.in fact, they sprayed once and they are telling me they need to do it three times.
Isnt it gel more effective than spraying raid?
If the product didn't do anything the first time, I don't think it will do something the second
I am waiting for an answer from the managing company in erm of what product they will use but I feel like calling my own ccompa y

What do you think?

I use the new continuous spray bug barrier in a blue bottle. Haven't seen a roach since I started using it.

They also make plug in ones. I haven't seen a mouse or roach since we moved in here..A bit spendy at tirst but worth it..Hope you find something that works for you..Maybe call an exterminating company and then take it off the rent..That's not acceptable..HUGS..

Gel works I hear. They put it in your door crevices. I don't think we've ever had to use it, but I hear it works great.

Hmmm, I have read about those. Do they work for spiders?

We live in the country now, and have spiders. I HATE spiders!

 I haven't had this problem, but I am sure there are some very effective products out there.
