We have ticks and poison oak out here, but thankfully we don't have those little stinkers.
You can keep them.
Jacky, yeah, that's all I did today was look into good Tick and Chigger repellent. Found out that DEET doesn't work well for either. It only works in repelling while wet. Once it dries after applied, it no longer repels. Plus, DEET only repels, it doesn't kill them. What works best as repellent and kills them, is the ingredient called Permethrin. This works for up to 2 weeks after applying to skin and clothes. It does kill cats, so word of caution when using. I have dogs, which aren't in danger around Permethrin. So thanks for the info Jacky, I'll be using both, Permethrin and DEET. I have 2 good friends with Lymes, and lost another to it, after getting up to her brain. She suffered for many years.
Yeah, I only saw that one that fell off my glove onto my seat. My wife checked me real good head to toe when I got home. Nothing found. Then you sent me that text saying you found 3 crawlers and 1 already attached to your skin. I know about ticks, but these Chiggers are new to me. Yes, Heebejeebes for sure.......
I feel like getting a 55gal drum and doing a full body soak just before riding.... Saw some nasty pics on my search today.
Ok I got to ask. What the heck are "chiggers" ?
TSC has it on sale right now.
I just bought a quart tonight.
....because I was out back clearing brush and found this guy on me when I came in for lunch. I wasn't wearing deet or treated clothes and should have been. It's a male deer tick (Ixodes scapularis)...the kind that carries Lyme disease.
I just read about them. Funny how I feel itchy just reading about them.
LOL, Tell me about it. I "tried" going to sleep an hour ago. Since this thread, all I'm doing is feeling and scratching...SOB Thanks Jacky....!!! LOL
Why? Because it's not the ones you feel or see. It's the ones you don't see that you gotta worry about..... Good Night.....
Bob....something's crawling on you...
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
