Almost every tablet or gel for ants contains one of such pesticides as imidacloprid, fipronil and hydramethylnon . Same pesticides are used in such roach traps as Terro Liquid Ant Baits or Harris Famous Roach Tablets. Same ingredients are used for insecticide sprays, like Raid Max Ant & Roach.
If you have ant traps with regular glue and they smell nice, cockroaches will visit them too.  
Another way of dealing with insects of all kinds is to use a plug-in electronic repeller, like The Ultrasonic Pest Repeller or Zcen Pest Control, that use high frequencies to kill uninvited creatures.
