    This time of year I don't go into the grass outside of my own yard without a little bug spray on the lower legs. The Deet based sprays are pretty much 100% effective against them. It's good to hear that they get to feed on a little foreign blood now and then though, lol. :tounge_out: There isn't too much worse than a bunch of chigger bites.

    While camping/floating this weekend I got several with a few even between my toes. Apparently they crawled into my shoes in between wearing. Talk about fun! :wink: It must be some kind of sick joke that the only thing that saves you from being torn up by chiggers is the one thing that practically guarantees the fish won't bite.

    I too have more than a dozon bites on each ankle. The ones that are really bothering me are the ones in the crotch area. I'ts all I can do to keep from scatching myself in front of people at work. But as soon as i'm home I can scratch away. Although it seems the more I scratch, the worse it itches. Thats what I get for sitting in the grass at work during break. :crazy:
