How Long Does Raid Spray Last

How Long Does Raid Spray Last?


Applying Raid roach spray to surfaces could kill roaches for up to two weeks. The spray may even last longer, although the manufacturer suggests two weeks reflect the maximum duration.


Applying Raid Roach Spray

Raid ranks high on many consumer's lists as the top product of choice when hoping to kill annoying roaches. Often, someone may see a roach and spray Raid directly onto the creature. The creature may die soon after exposure to Raid. Worries about other roaches lurking about might lead someone to spray areas. The idea is the roaches will end up exposed to the poison and also die.


Be Wary of Raid Exposure


Since Raid is a poison, anyone spraying in a room needs to keep clear until it is safe. Review the directions on the label for exact times. Allowing the solution to dry and airing out the rooms by opening doors and windows appears recommended.


Wiping Away Raid


Wiping Raid off the ground or other surfaces may be necessary when someone feels he or she applied too much. Others may worry about the dangers associated with poison remaining on a surface. Wearing gloves, wiping the Raid solution with a towel, and safely disposing of the towel could be the steps some take.


Going with Roach Baits


Raid and other manufacturers also produce roach baits. Roaches eat the bait and then return to the nest. Poisoned roaches then die, and their remains end up consumed by the other roaches. The roaches ingest the poisoned roach die, as well.
