Cockroaches are very prolific at reproducing. Once they get into your house, they will continue to reproduce as long as possible until they have possibly hundreds to thousands of individuals in your walls and kitchen areas. Many people like to go to hardware stores and get a can of over-the-counter pesticide in order to deal with these insects. This is usually not a good idea. Over-the-counter sprays and cans are repellent type pesticides. So once you spray them, you will kill anything that you hit on contact, but you also create a barrier which the other cockroaches will smell and not cross. If you spray too much of this, you can trap a group of cockroaches in an area that you can’t get to such as behind an appliance or inside a wall.
