In brief: Parasites

Cockroaches frequently feed on human feces, and therefore they can disseminate cysts of enteric protozoans in the environment if such feces are contaminated (7, 16, 24, 25, 30, 31, 32).
The important epidemiological role of cockroaches in transmission of intestinal entamoeba histolytica-associated amoebiasis was demonstrated in 1971 (25) and in giardiasis in 1981 (16).
