The aim of this study was to isolate andidentify bacteria that are picked up by P. aegyptica over the human and animal  premises. In this study totally five P. aegyptica were collected to isolate their bacteria, from the house in Ahvaz SW Iran using common bacteriology methods. The isolated bacteria in this study were Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Neisseria species, Bacillus cereus, B. subtilis and Staphylococci aureus based on sampling of external body and feces pellets of Egyptian cockroaches.
