A largely nocturnal insect, Order Blattaria; most common US roaches are Periplaneta americana, Blattella germanica and B orientalis, and are of medical interest as potential vectors for bacteria—e.g., Salmonella species; other organisms cultured from cockroaches include Shigella, Proteus, Mycobacterium spp, E coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Having a body cavity so much longer than it is wide precludes the development of the large diverticulae or paunches needed for microbial activity as in Blattodea (Watanabe & Tokuda 2010) or countercurrent flow to increase enzymatic activity time as in Acrididae (Terra 1990).
Os saprofagos que se alimentam diretamente dos residuos de plantas, fragmentando-os, pertencem aos grupos: Blattodea, Dermaptera, Diplopoda, Diplura, Isopoda, Psocoptera e Symphyla.
Los insectos fueron el grupo mas rico en especies y estuvieron representados por once ordenes: Blattodea, Coleoptera, Dermaptera, Diptera, Hemiptera, Hymenoptera, Lepidoptera, Neuroptera, Orthoptera, Trichoptera y Thysanura.
Algunos ordenes tienden a ser caracteristicos de la plantacion, como Blattodea e Isopoda, mientras Hymenoptera y Homoptera resultan ser mas frecuentes en el Bosque.
