Permanone is great if you have time to think about it beforehand and spray your clothes down. I sprayed down once and apparently didn't allow some of it in a seam to dry long enough and I had a red burning spot on my knee soon after. Trick I've always used is to taper my pants at the bottom with an elastic band, put my boots on and spray around the outside with bug spray. They have to make it through the spray, down my boot, under my pants and up over my sock before they get to me. Haven't had one get on my legs in 5 years doing it that way.

From this old retired Marine, it works. Avon Skin so Soft also works for skeeters. Also sage fresh if you can get it works for flees, ticks and chiggers.

I have been a Land Surveyor since 1973, back then we learned to spray ankles, boots, jeans from boots to knees, waist band and wrists with any type of "Off" brand produce, I can not tell you the last time that I had a chigger, its just not that difficult to prevent the problem, you are reading to much into the problem

I went in the woods yesterday and tried the Deep Woods Off for the first time. Not one bite from chiggers yet......I think the key was that I sprayed my inside leg up to my knee cap. I also sprayed my sock and outside pants.....Finally no more chiggers.....

either you didn't get in any or your chiggers are different. the ones around here drink that off stuff.
