Chiggers are out in force!

Recommended Posts

Was in the woods today getting a spot setup and got covered with chiggers. Glad I sprayed down, they died in short order! Careful out there!

I'm surprised I haven't been covered in bugs yet this year.  Been walking through the woods without any bug spray and haven't picked up any hitchhikers.  Walked through plenty of spiders webs.

 

Now that I've said that I'll be picking a generation of ticks off myself during opening day.

I got chewed up pretty bad a few weeks ago scouting in VA.  Used a bug spray with deet but it didn't seem to work.  Going back to VA to hunt in October . . . Besides Permanone, what's the best preventative spray down to use?

If you get into chiggers on your skin rub

Some Clorox on yourself quickly.

 

I use this on the kids after they get

Attacked when they come out with me it works great.

 

Chiggers don't seem to like me too much

But I've had to rub down w bleach a few times.

It kills em an feels better.

 

And they WILL live in your vehicle for a while.

I couldn't believe yesterday I got a few chiggers on me.  After that cold snap, I thought it would have killed them all!

I didn't have a ton like in the pictures above, but had enough that I sprayed down once I got to the next spot I wanted to scout! :eek:

How far north are these things found? All my hunting is north of rt78 and never had an issue. I have hunted Princeton for a few years , years ago and again never an issue.

What did you use? Cause when I first went down to Va in August I sprayed down with a repellent containing deet and it didn't work.  I got bit up pretty bad. The Chigg Away worked really well but always looking for other good products to keep in my arsenal.

I've always used Permanone and never had any issues with ticks or chiggers.  But if I don't spray, it can look like the above pics! :eek:

Actually even when I spray they'll cling on, but they'll quickly die and fall off.

I'll have to check out Chigg Away next season, they were BAD down here this year...worst I've seen in a long time.

 

I can't believe Turkeyboy goes around those cranberry bogs in shorts a a t-shirt!  haha

I live in Hamilton not far from Princeton. Never heard of them till I started to hunt Jackson and Burlington. The boys in Jackson taught me a great trick now it's an essential in my bag. This thing is just as important and my knife. Lol

Lint roll myself as soon as I get to each spot.
