Abstract

Cockroach caused intestinal problem due to its mechanical vectorial capability. It can carry many parasites, with diverse susceptibility patterns. Its number in the enviromenment determine the potential risk of health hazard to human. This cross-sectional, entomological survey-study aimed to determine its prevalence with emphasize on vectorial capability, public heath implication and comparison of several traditional baits/ attractants used to trapped cockroach. During 4 months of sampling, 434 cockroaches were successfully trapped, and the prevalence of intestinal parasite isolated was 77.9%,which comprise of several types of parasite. Cockroach also more attracted to brown sugar used as baits/attractants. These findings confirmed the importance of keeping hygiene/sanitation practices that must be maintain all the time. Keywords: brown sugar, protozoa, helminth, hygiene, atractants
