Chiggers are HORRIBLE!!! You itch for an what seems like forever. I hope I never get any of those little buggers AGAIN [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] It would be nice if there was some way to get rid of them or keep them from biting you. Like Ozzy said, they like to bite where your skin is softest and where skin meets skin. Avoid them at all costs. BELIEVE ME, you never want a chigger again for the rest of your life after you are first bittten by one ( or maybe about 50 like me).
    My understanding is that by the time you feel the tremendous itching, the little buggers are dead. What you're feeling is the body's reaction to him/her dying under your skin.
    All the best,

    grr... stupid thing didn't copy. well, ozzy you said something about them burrying under your skin or something.

    I was going to quote some of it here but it was basically the whole thing so just click on it.
    they don't burrow under your skin and nail polish doesn't cure/treat/kill chiggers, it just makes it less itchy.

    Well I decided to comw out last night. Even with all the Off that I used I still couldn't keep the ticks off of me. I was pulling them off all day. I'm still waiting to see if any chiggers pop up, but as of now I think I only have two chiggers.

    I saw plenty of cp's. S.flavas, rubras, purpurea. D.intermedia, capilaris, and a hybrid of the two. I saw thousands of vft's. U.gibba and some other bladderworts.
    I also saw some orchids, several rare red-cockaded woodpecker. I saw two snakes but they got away before I could identify them.
    I also found a tree that had a huge nest. It didn't look like a bird nest it looked like a bunch of pine tree branches pulled together. I got pics of it, I'll get them and the other pics online soon.

The only benefit to applying a thick coat of nail polish is that it helps to remind you not to scratch the bite

    Well, in the last 24 hrs I have realized that Off does not work on chiggers. So far I have about 10 of them, and more keep poping up. I geuss I'll have to find another product that works better.
