Chigger Attack!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, this isn't the greatest looking leg in the world without chigger bites, but with them it is plumb ugly:^( August is probably the worst month in the summer for these little varmints. Probably got most of them while I was out in the woods setting up some game cameras. I think our yard and garden is loaded as well.
I forgot to use any OFF. Sulfur powder is also a good deterrant. Anyhow, if you happen to fall victum as I have, you have my sympathy. X.


  1. Looks like it's probably pretty itchy. Grew up in the country, but never had chigger bites. Guess I was lucky.

  2. there is nothing I do not like more than chiggers... has been a while since I had a mess of them eat on me... can't say that I miss them at all... my sympathy goes out to you... as I know how crazy they can drive you...hope its over soon

  3. I think this year is the first year I haven't gotten any. *knock on wood*

    You definately have my sympathies.



  4. It's actually been at least 20 years since I had a dose of these little monsters. You'd think they wouldn't have anything to do with an ol geezer like me. Or could it be that my tuff ol hide has aged like a fine wine? X.

  5. Im 51 and ive never heard of a chigger, what is it?

  6. First off, it's a mean little booger:^) Most people don't know this, but it's a member of the spider family. So small it is almost invicible to the human eye. Lies in wait in tall grass and weeds. If you don't get them washed off quick enough they leave a bite that itches like crazy. Are particularly fond of the more tender areas of skin. Most active during August. X.
