Chiggers?

Postby Brian Lang » Mon Jun 21, 2010 9:36 pm

I am not sure if I got ate up at Claystone in Macon, at GSSS at Meeks, or in the bed at The Seasons Inn but I have a lot of bites on me now. I did not spray because I have not heard chiggers being a problem at Meeks. The bites are mainly around my waist and thighs. Did anyone else get into any mess this weekend?

Conor and I got them all over our ankles. Must have been the park since the rest of the family was not affected.

They're probably hiding out in the tee pads - another reason for concrete! :mrgreen:

It's been so long since I've had to worry about them that they didn't even cross my mind. I realized my mistake when I got home and found that my torso was a giant welt...

Those are mountain hillbilly chiggers and the sneak up on you - Always Spray - I also recommned spraying the bottom of your bag too so you don't get any hitch hikers....The reality is that this advice is way too late and you are feeling like you have to scratch right now - doh!!

REI sells this stuff called Repel 100. It is 100% deet. It is a little pricey but it goes a long way and is better than a swollen sac :shock:

You may want to spray your sack too even though it may sting a bit

Yup Christy & are were victims too.

No sac action but plenty of ankle/torso damage.

Locals must be chigger-resistant. None of us have had any problems. Must be the moonshine...

Need to be what? Little people are open books, so bring on your questions Grease... When I look a chigger in the eye, they run from my low-hanging limbs and dare not attach. Are you braver than a chigger?
