Default Rat Poison vs. Cockroaches

I have put some rat (mouse) poison in one of my cabinets
because of a serious amount of mouse droppings. Lately
I have found roaches (the big ones) feasting on the rat
poison. My question is, is the rat poison going to kill
the roaches?

My plan is to buy some roach poison, but if the rat poison
will eventually kill them, I'll just let them keep eating

Thanks in advance,

Rat poison may kill roaches but I would also buy poison designed for
roaches. Toxicity towards various substances can vary greatly between
species and you want a poison designed for the target pest.

I prefer to trap mice in the old fashioned snap traps. I've used poison
but dead mice in the walls may cause a stink.
