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.


I used the OFF because I got ate up the last few weeks checking my cameras...Same area and the OFF did the trick.....At least for me....

Check out the Cabelas BugSkinz. They are basically a heavy-duty camo set (tops and bottoms) of nylon pantyhose type material where the mest is so small that the chiggers and seed ticks can't get to your skin to bite. I have a set of Rhinoskins (same stuff) that I wear during turkey and early archery season. It is hot, but worth it for the extra protection from the ticks.

Permanone is the key for both ticks and chiggers. Spray your clothes down well and you can just about forget about them.

im going to try the permanoene, but after your already bit i have just found that ammonia rubbed on with a cotton ball helps alot with the itching. Put it on about three times a day for 4-5 days and life isn't so uncomfortable. And you may not have chiggers the seed ticks I've been haveing problems with are so tiny you almost need a magnafing glass to see them. I seem to have more problems when i get in the cedar tree areas. hope this helps and good luck!

Remember 'Permanone' is simply the brand name. Any product that contains the active ingredient Permethrin will be effective against ticks of all variety, chiggers, and mosquitos.

When I get chigger bites and the itching is the worst I get into a hot tub which makes it painful but when I get out the itching and pain is gone for a day. This gets me a day closer to the bites going away.

Always tuck your pants into your boots and like it or not, wear dog flea and tick collars on your ankles. They are not dangerous to humans and work like a dream. I simply cannot hunt turkey without them, I can't take the itching, causes me to act crazy. And no, I feel no urge to bark or pee on fire hydrants.
