ARRRRRRRRGH Chiggers

10 posts in this topic

Decided to do some weeding on Sunday since I haven't had time to do any for the last month. Monday I drove down to Mpls and back to Grand Rapids, was a miserable trip legs itching like the devil. Thought I might have gotten into some poison ivy, checked my legs last night and they are covered with bites, a friend who is an ex-landscaper/gardner came by, took one look and said "unhuh, chigger bites". I have slathered them with Benadryl and I am going nuts...............This is awful

I guess I won't be wearing shorts while I'm exploring the Ely area this week. I was concerned about skeeters.

Try the product "Sea Breeze". Worked great for me. Just rub it on and they back right out.

Yes, my granddaughters got the chiggers bad this last weekend at the cabin. Sea breeze works wonderful.

My 7 year old granddaughter told her 5 year old sister, they are just bug bites and you will be ok. She said that as she was scratching her leg.

Glenn you take a empty jar and travel to the ocean. Open the jar when a breeze comes up. Point the jar into the wind and then quickly put the cover back on. laughgringrin

Lets see NO air conditioning yet so sleeping has not been the best. NO home cooked meals either. Anyone starting to feel sorry for me. (just kidding). 11-12 hour work days this week. And finally no one working on the house yet today.

Good news is I still have humor and I DO NOT HAVE CHIGGERS.

    •     Hitler won the Holocaust, too..
    •   You need to stop eating those funny mushrooms before wondering around in the woods like that. You could get lost! Lol
    • No, not morels (at least not here), but I saw two different species of mushrooms on a little walk through a local woods: the "orange peel fungus" (aleuria aurantia) and one little brown mushroom that I couldn't identify.  The season isn't that far away!! 
    •   First of all, don't you know that CNN is fake news?    Second, if everyone took that advice there would be more Atheists than Christians.                -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------            
    •   How about the plan that has proven effective in Portugal that I've told you about several times now? Are you just going to keep ignoring it and continue to ask silly questions?
    • Weather around the state has and will continue its fickle behavior as we close out an exceptionally warm week and move toward a significantly cooler weekend. Rain and snow are predicted across the state, with temperatures expected to fall rapidly Friday into Saturday, leading many to wonder if any of this precipitation will stick around long enough to revitalize the snowmobile and ski trails. Currently snowmobile trails remain open in a few northern counties, but conditions are very poor with bear spots and some standing water according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Ski trails have similar conditions where they remain open.Eagles are congregating along the Mississippi River just in time for Bald Eagle Appreciation Days at Prairie du Chien this weekend.Photo Credit: Donna HigginsThe warm front has also strongly effected ice-cover on state water bodies and anglers are also eagerly waiting to see what the weekend's cold front will provide. The ice on southern lakes is deteriorating fast and is unsafe to fish. Even in the Northwoods some waters are breaking up and where the ice is still thick there is plenty of water on it, and areas of open water have started to show up along shorelines and in marshes and especially around beaver lodges. As a result, many anglers have taken advantage of warm temperatures for open water fishing. This past weekend 100 plus boats were fishing the Fox River from the 172 Bridge to the dam at Voyageur Park. Anglers in boats have been having mixed results catching coho salmon and brown and rainbow trout in the Milwaukee Harbor and in Oak Creek. Anglers were open water fishing the Rock River for walleye and sauger, where the bite was on at the Indianford Dam. Sauger and walleye were biting on Lake Wisconsin. Warm temperatures and rain will have the Wisconsin River back above flood stage this weekend. .
    •   My two cents... if you use vinyl you will never have to replace it again. When is the water ever going to hit it and STAY moist? That is what carpet does, vinyl will allow the water to roll right off.
    • Holy shamoley. Ott sacked em up big time!!
