I’ll give some active ingredients that I like; look on the label for the following at “active ingredients” as I don’t know what is in each product that you listed.

All crawling insects including roaches: cyfluthrin; deltamethrin; lambda-cyhalothrin;

All crawling insects, but not so much for roaches: bi-fenthrin;

I’d prefer cyfluthrin over the other two; then Lambda-cyhalothrin, then deltamethrin. The big box stores carry the concentrates and the “ready to use” products, at least here in Pa.

I use Raid Max about twice a year for spiders and waterbugs. It works great.
