Do Crickets Bite Humans?

It is rare for a cricket to bite a human, but crickets are capable of biting. A cricket bite is not fatal to a human. Cricket bites can cause painful sores, and there are a number of diseases that can be spread through their cricket bites or cricket feces.

Crickets are a medium to large-sized insect. They have chewing mouth parts for cutting their food. The back legs are strong, allowing them to jump far. The male cricket makes a chirping noise by rubbing his front wings together. The female cricket has an ovipositor, a thin round tube, on the end of her abdomen to deposit her eggs into the ground.
