And they found the antibiotic resistance profile was very similar between the pigs and the insects.
"We tested these [samples] for antibiotic resistance against eight different antibiotics used in human medicine, and some in animal medicine," Zurek tells WebMD.
"These insects are more than just a nuisance, which is how they are viewed on the farms," he says. "They could represent a potential risk of spreading bacteria from pig manure [to] outside farms."
''We saw that there is a very good match between bacteria we got from the pigs and houseflies and cockroaches," he tells WebMD.

The flies, he says, can travel from the farms to surrounding residential areas. "Workers can carry the cockroaches accidentally [from the farm] with them to their houses and establish cockroach populations wherever those people live."

could be responsible for spreading the antibiotic resistant bacteria to people, once they travel from the farms, he tells WebMD.
The best strategy for operators of swine farms? Zurek says the operators should try to lower the population of the insects, both flies and cockroaches. "It's impossible to get rid of them," he says.
It's not the pigs causing the potential problem, but rather the insects commonly found on these pig farms, including flies and cockroaches, says Ludek Zurek, PhD, an associate professor of microbial ecology at Kansas State University, who led the study.
Superbugs From Farms: ImplicationsWhile there are no direct studies to show the link between bacteria in insects found on pig farms and human health, according to Zurek, he says the potential risk is there.
Enterococci were found in nearly 90% of the pig samples, 94% of the cockroach samples, and more than 98% of the fly samples.

Superbugs From the Farm: Study DetailsZurek's Lacoste Hoodie Grey team visited several swine farms in North Carolina and Kansas, collecting the insects and fecal matter from the pigs. Back in the lab, they isolated bacteria from the pig feces, comparing them to the bacteria present in the intestines of the house flies and cockroaches.
Jan. 25, 2011 Superbugs that are resistant to antibiotics, long known to create life threatening infections in hospital patients, could also be originating from animal farms where antibiotics are used to promote growth, potentially threatening human health, new research suggests.
Animal Farms May Produce Superbugs
Samples from all were found to be highly resistant to streptomycin, and kanamycin.

The study is published in BMC Microbiology.
The researchers focused on two common gut bacteria, Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium, analyzing 119 samples from pigs, 83 from cockroaches, and 162 from flies.
