    I think he means chiggers, which are not actually as bad as people make them out to be: How do you treat chigger or red bug bites? |

    Just curious. Have you ever had chiggers?
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    No, I supposed I shouldn't really voice my opinion on the matter then. Although I know people always talked about them burrowing into your skin, so I relieved when I found out that they don't.

    I didn't know what chiggers were until this thread.

    Over here in the UK we had a child actor/actor/TV presenter nicknamed Cheggers ( Keith Chegwin) Now he really could break you out in an itchy rash. Nausea was also prevalent.

    The easiest way to get rid of chiggers is with a shot of whiskey and some fine grain sand.
    First you pour the whiskey over your skin where the chiggers are.
    Then you rub the sand over the area.
    Finally sit back and hope the little buggers get drunk and throw rocks at each other.

    Also I read that if you boil the moss for a minute it will remove all of the microb critters within the moss.
    Google is your friend, this is the third site I found within about 15 seconds:

    Get a chigger somewhere unmentionable and tell me how 'not that bad' they are.
