    They sure seem to be out early this year. I had hoped that the cold winter would have slowed them down.

    What we have here, Are Equal Opportunity Ticks. They not only swim they walk just as good as they dance. And they sail through the air with the greatest of ease.

    Steve, an old recipe for chiggers is to run a tub full of water and then add a cup of bleach and climb in.. Kills chiggers quick..

    Does anybody know what purpose ticks have in life? They are the most worthless bug I have ever seen but anyway I went out the other day off the Mo. river mushroom hunting and I picked off ticks for an hour. It was unreal how many there where. Got 2 bag fulls of shrooms in 2 hours.

    I spray my clothes with Repel Permanone and dont get ticks or chiggers anymore. Last weekend I was out turkey hunting and saw one on my sweatshirt but it was dead. The ticks die when they get on the sprayed clothes.
