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.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
