Well Maggots can eat flesh not good flesh but they do eat dead flesh. and Army ants i do belieave eat it as well


Answer by  Binome (1975)

Many insects exist that eat dead flesh (some maggots are even used to clean wounds, since they leave the living flesh alone) but few eat live flesh. Army ants can and will swarm and eat living creatures. Botflies lay eggs in living tissue, and the larva eats its way out.

If you consider leeches to be bugs, then yes there are. Leeches eat the uppermost section of your skin. There are also some variation of flies that inject their eggs into your bloodstream, which then hatch and eat your flesh from the inside out. Although reportedly these flies are only found in South America.
