Despite what many believe, cockroaches aren’t generally known to bite humans. Being omnivores, and one of the most infamous natural scavengers, cockroaches will, however, feed on almost anything, whether meat or plant based. 

About Cockroach Bites

There was once a dark rumour that cockroaches will eat human flesh – whether dead or living – but we can, fortunately, confirm that human flesh does not make up part of a cockroach’s staple diet. 

In the rare event that a cockroach does try to bite you, you will feel a nip. A bite from one of these pests will normally cause some irritation and swelling of the affected area, but seldom will a cockroach bite cause more of a problem than this.

If you are unfortunate enough to be bitten by a cockroach, it is unlikely to become a regular event, as humans are not a core food source for the bugs.

We offer specialist cockroach pest control with a 2 hour response time, call JG Pest Control now, on 0203 588 2630

Pests that Bite

If you are being bitten regularly, there are a few other pests that could be the culprit.

The most common biting insects in the UK are bed bugs and fleas. These parasites will feed on the blood of the host and bite at any chance given.

Additionally, ladybirds, carpet beetles and mites are also known to bite humans.

People often confuse a bed bug infestation with cockroaches, so if you find yourself being bitten regularly, it’s unlikely cockroaches are the problem.
