It's ugly!!! Does it bite or pinch?

Looks like an Ant Lion - larvae of the Damselfly. They make the little cones in soft sand, waiting at the bottom for ants that fall in.

My Mother always told us, "You don't bother it, it won't bother you." Defensive biting is wholly justifiable.

What about offensive bitting? It happens despite what your Mother may have told you <3

Looking at Ant Lion images, I'm not too confident that's right. Their leg proportions look different.

961: What is offensive biting? Fleas? Mosquitos?

It looks like a relative of the earwig

Definitely a lacewing larva. Beneficial! They are usually biting aphids, not people. It looks like an antlion larva because those two insect species are related

definitely lacewing larvae. Nearly all larvae of the Neuroptera order look similar

065, I tend to be pretty offended at any biting.

Cockroach, early stage? They do bite when they run out of easy pickings.
