    Re: The common cockroach associated with disease

    Does this "associated with disease" mean "when they get some disease"?

    ex)The common cockroach, associated with disease, runs away when exposed to light.

    No, it means that people associate cockroaches with diseases. That is, the think the cockroaches carry disease and their presence in one's home can mean a human would pick up a disease.
