    Skin so soft is an excellent repellent that is well supposed to be on your skin.

    We used it for all kinds of pests from the outside. Its fairly inexpensive and it beats putting a carcinogen on your skin. Once you get em, well good luck getting rid of the nasty itch.

    Deer season opens August 15th here, I had over 100 redbugs on one foot a couple of years ago after hunting. Deep woods off around the ankles and beltline. Good for ticks and redbugs.

    It's been an unusually wet and humid summer here in NC. I've heard that's the kind of weather that chiggers love. I can't help but believe that they're somehow attracted to beehives.
    I could write a book about what I don't know.

    Im not convinced they are attracted to beehives. Im thoroughly convinced they are attracted to people though. The most common areas I would pick them up from is tall grassy areas.

    Just be glad they where not Straw Itch Mites, Chiggers and Red Bugs don't begin to compare to them.
