This is the safe stuff. Pyrethrin. Makes 8 gallons for $15. Repel has Permethrin which can be toxic.

The difference being Pyrethrin is a natural extract from the chrysanthemum plant, and will not harm mammals, fish, or, birds. Permethrin belongs to the family of synthetic chemicals called Pyrethroids. It is extremely toxic to fish and cats, and has been linked to poisoning dogs as a flea/tick repellent. It is not as environmentally safe to use as Pyrethrin. Therefore, it is not the same thing.

Most likely not chiggers - likely seed ticks.
Permethrin for either. Other deet stuff like Off will not work.
It is not the killing ...; it is the contest of skill and cunning. The true hunter counts his achievement in proportion to the effort involved and the fairness of the sport.
