    I have to say chiggers because they tend to get me around my socks and waistline. That and it itchs like a sumbabit**:crazy:. For those of you that don't know what a chigger is, it is kinda like a mini tick that bite the crap outta of ya. Just goggle chiggers and you will see what i mean.

    Chiggers are the worst!!!
    The best thing to do is get a bag of sulfur and spread it. Also put some on your pants, socks and shoes before going into those chigger infested fields.
    Chiggers hate sulfur!!

    I hated talking a vinegar bath when I was younger for chiggers. At least with skeeters they bite you and they are gone.

    I had to say chiggers,But I have a good way to keep them off of me. I first spray deepwoods off liberally from the waist down,BEFORE I DRESS,then my socks,then jeans and last my boots after I put them on. Its a little trouble,But well worth the extra effort.

    Mosquitos I can swat (and feel better) Ticks I can pull off and squish (and feel better) but chiggers are the worst. "Chigger-rid" is good AFTER they bite. Blackberry picking is prime chigger country.

    I'm like Joey. Chiggers pretty much leave me alone. Mosquitoes annoy me. The more onions and garlic I eat definitely affect how much I an annoyed. I take care of the rest with deep woods. It's gotten to where I need the smell of it to feel like I am fully in my fishing mode! lol :smile2:

    If I'm going to be in the woods this time of year, I wear a set of clothes treated with Permethrin.

    First off chiggers is not polictally correct,they are now called chiggroes.IMO chiggroes are by far the worst.I almost ended up in ER a couple of times with so many bites there wasn't room to bite me any more.The only place I didn't have bites was on my face.Didnt sleep for about 3 days.Nuke em I say.:angry::crazy:

    Chiggers is by far the worst for me. I have a very bad experiance with them when I was 7 or 8 years old. Got them in the nadds...No joke. swelled up like a watermellon. Hospital visit and shots to take care of it. Just a bad memory. I'm sure you all are LOL right now.

    About thirty years ago, I was attacked by chiggers and they covered every inch of my body....it was aweful. The bites and itching lasted for weeks. Now since that day....I have never been bitten by them agan. So I voted Skeeters are worse for me now.....they "SUCK".:smile2:

    Chiggers is the worse for me. Cant see the little things when they go to eating on ya and they itch like crazy. When I was about 7-8 years old I had em so bad and scratch them so hard that I thought I was going to loose my foot from ankle down. Infection, swelling was bad, couldn't walk. Had to go to doctor over it. Took several weeks to get rid of the effects. we got em every summer . We use to take bleach baths to get rid of them
    But seems like now days they dont bother me as much as skeeters do. Not sure why.
    Maybe they aint as bad where I live. Course when I'm outside, I soak down in Deep woods off . plus when I come in for the night. I rub down with alcohol using a wash cloth. That might be why I dont get em as bad Still, chiggers are the worse for me. that an poison ivy. use not bother me till I burned a bunch of it one day and breath in the smoke. Now I cant get near it.
