No, they wont bite.Sometimes the false deathheads are also called orange heads I think.They do have prickly feet and sometimes it can feel like a bite but really they are harmless, just creepy...

False death heads are correctly called Discoids.

Orange headed roaches are a different species.

They do not bit as their mouth organs are too small to get through our skin. If you put your hand in and give them enough time, they can eat your hair though. :P
