Ok, so last weekend went out and put up cams, stands, feeders, plots etc...


Came home with a kajillion bites around my ankles and various other parts!

About 99% sure it's chiggers....


HOW THE HECK DO I NOT HAVE THIS HAPPEN AGAIN! WHAT A PAIN!

Just looked it all up.... about 10 different web sites...

1. Sulfer in, on, around boots/socks when outdoors (I actually remember this from being a kid on a farm)

2. Take a BATH right after coming out of the woods. Takes about 4-5 hrs before they actually settle down and start feeding on you. (They actually feed on your skin not your blood)

3. Anti itch cream is the only treatment. Nail polish is an old wives tale. Itching gets worse over 2 days, then peaks, then goes away after about a week!

#3 is the reason why I was itching my butt off while I was sleeping last night. Thought I was going to wake up to a blood bath I was itching my ankles so much!

STUPID BUGS SERVE ZERO PURPOSE....

To those that are god believers.... why would god create such a menacing bug like chiggers, or ticks, or roaches. THEY SERVE ZERO PURPOSE!

We went to our lease and put out a trail cam on Sunday. My hunting buddy sent me a text Monday morning and said he was ate up with chigger bites. I raised my pants legs and sure enough I was too. Had he not told me, I dont know when I would have noticed. We have had problems with ticks in the last couple months but not chiggers.

Yeah, chiggers just got me this week. The big problem all summer was the ticks! I've never ever seen so many ticks in my life!

I got home Sunday evening and pulled up my pants legs and had 5 itty bitty ones attached to me and a huge one crawling up my neck!

When all said and done my wife found 10 of them on me!!

Needless to say I now know alot about lyme disease and the care/prevention/treatment of ticks!

Tuck your pants IN your socks, then wear boots and spray down. You look kinda funny, but it works

Permanone will keep them off of you, but it's also important that you keep your shirt tucked in, as well as your pants tucked into your boots.
If you go out in the woods in tennis shoes and jeans, you're just asking for trouble with those little guys.
I spray Permanone all over my clothes, but especially around my belt line, and where my pants go into my boots.
I-HATE-CHIGGERS!!!
If you get a bad enough case of them, you can run fever as your body mounts an attack against them.
