American cockroach (Periplaneta americana) harbor and disseminate the microorganisms to the environment. They play important role in the transmission of different diseases either mechanically, occasionally and biologically. The presence of these cockroaches in the kitchens is an indicator of poor food hygiene. These pathogenic bacteria along with their vector not only detoriate our environment but also contaminate our food. Cockroaches may spread a range of diseases. Cockroaches are a health… Expand
Cockroaches (Blattodea: Blattidae): A Reservoir of Pathogenic Microbes in Human-Dwelling Localities in Lahore
TLDR
This study focuses on isolation of pathogenic bacteria from external and internal surfaces of cockroaches collected from houses and hospitals in Lahore, finding no Salmonella typhi, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Enterobacter aerogenes, and Streptococcus pneumonia were found in the digestive tract of any cockroach.

Bacterial and Fungal Microflora of Cockroaches Collected from Cafteria and Food Centres in Sokoto
Bacterial and fungal species associated with cockroaches (Periplaneta americana) in cafeteria and food centers in Sokoto state were investigated. A total of one hundred and eighty four (84) adultExpand
Parasitic Infestation in Cockroaches (Periplaneta americana) Obtained in Selected Areas of Metro Manila
TLDR
The cockroaches obtained in Manila had the highest diversity of parasites seen on the external surface, and those collected in Quezon City had the least parasite diversity although those in Quezona City hadThe highest parasite load seen in the cockroach examined. Expand
Household cockroaches of Quetta city as reservoir for infectious pathogenic bacteria
TLDR
The current finding of this study suggests that household cockroaches act as potential vector and reservoir of some important bacterial pathogens. Expand
THE HUMAN PATHOGENS CARRIED BY THE COCKROACHES IN THE FOOD-RELATED ENVIRONMENT POTENTIALLY CAUSING A FOODBORNE DISEASES: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW
TLDR
It was found that most of the cockroaches captured in/around food handling establishment and human habitation carried many pathogens, which can cause severe infections in humans, such as foodborne diseases through contaminated food. Expand
Effect of isolated bacteria and their supernatant from American cockroach’s ootheca on its hatching as a safety method for control in Jeddah governorate
TLDR
The present study reveals that the toxicity of bacterial cell of B. subtilis has great potential more than free-cells for biological control against P. americana ootheca. Expand
Oral toxicity of various Stemona collinsiae crude extracts against nymph and adult stages of American cockroach, Periplaneta americana (Dictyoptera: Blattodea)
TLDR
Dichloromethane and hexane crude extracts can be developed as alternative active ingredients in a natural insecticide for cockroach control and may be attributed to alkaloids and synergistic effects of other substances in S. collinsiae root extract. Expand
Contamination of Cockroaches (Insecta: Blattaria) by Medically Important Bacteriae: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
  • H. Nasirian
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of Medical Entomology
  • 2019
TLDR
Cockroaches have the potential to disseminate bacteria in their environments and therefore a systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to assess the state of the art of knowledge regarding bacterial contaminants of cockroaches, indicating that the bacterial contaminant species of the external cockroach body parts are potentially more harmful than from internal surfaces. Expand
Species Diversity and Distributional Pattern of Cockroaches in Lahore, Pakistan
TLDR
The infestation rate of different species depends on availability of food sources, sanitary conditions and climatic conditions, and Cockroach infestation can be controlled with knowledge about their biology and behavior, attention to sanitation and effective use of commercial insecticides. Expand
