Apparently they do, as can be deduced from the following definition:

Phagocytosis is the ingestion or engulfing of some foreign particle or cell
by a phagocytic cell to form a food vacuole. Phagocytic cells are either
one-celled organisms or one of the body cells, such as a white blood cell.
Bacteria, dead tissue cells and dust particles are all examples of particles
that may be phagocytosed.
