Treatment for Chiggers:
Once you understand what chiggers do to your body, you will certainly choose to avoid them. They actually do not bite, they spit on people. Their saliva destroys skin cells and it becomes a mushy mess. Then the chiggers slop up that mush for food. What is left behind is destroyed skin that itches and hurts and it takes a very long time to heal.
Before going outside, spray yourself with Greenbug for People/Pets. Chiggers like to burrow where clothing is tight so spray thoroughly along the waistband and near undergarments. It is also smart to spray inside socks and in the cuffs of a shirt. If you are outside for a long time or if you are doing strenuous activity, it is a good idea to reapply.
As an extra layer of protection, you can add ¼ to ½ cup of Greenbug Ready to Use or Greenbug Concentrate properly diluted to the fabric softener cycle of your laundry. This will infuse your clothes with a very faint aroma of cedar that will let the chiggers know that you are off limits.
