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.

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
