Guys hoping someone here can help out with some advice...Heading out to the ranch to fill feeders and do some Turkey hunting and Wife and my 10 month old son will be tagging along. This time of year Chiggers are terrible at our place. Looking for any suggestions on the most effective and safest chigger repellent yall have used on your kids

Is he walking already? If he's crawling, I wouldn't put him down. Check the label on that Swamp Gator stuff (all natural). Some folks use Sulphur in their socks, but you can't put that all over him. Keep both Momma and son out of the weeds as much as possible and your life will be a lot easier. Good hunting.

Thanks Creekhunter...Not walking yet but he is a crawling machine. Been dying to take him out there and he is finally getting close to the age where he will clearly appreciate what nature has to offer...l know though that if he comes back full of bites then Mamma will not allow him to go back up till winter

I am probably going to catch hell for this but at 10 months he has no idea what is going on. Don't take him and if you do keep him off the ground. Do you remember what you did at 10 months? Don't start something about you and you son with your wife at this early age.

X2....Many a scientific study states that you cannot remember anything you did or that happened to you before the age of 4. So you are not making any memories for him...you maybe, but not him.Leave him at home but buy him some camouflaged diapers to crawl around on the floor in. That will send a message to your wife that when he is old enough, you and him will become great buddies at deer camp.

Avon skin-so soft lotion keeps skeeters away. It won't hurt a baby. Take him with you.

I forgot about this stuff. A lot of the African hunters swear by it. Good call.

Yeah, I wouldn't. They don't need that kind od misery. And what's he going to do while you are filling feeders? Crawl around having fun with the fire ants and the scorpions? But hey, if you are up for the long nights of miserable mom and baby from chigger bites, go for it.

Any sulfar based soap/lotion works.

Personally I agree. I have a cousin that lost a leg to a snakebite when he was a toddler as he wasn't old enough to tell anyone he got bit and no one caught the fang marks until it was just about too late. That was always in the back of my mind when I thought about taking my son with me. Now he goes just about everytime I go but I waited till he was about 3.5 and was talking in pretty much complete sentences to be able to say hungry/hot/tired/etc and to know enough not to play with the foot long copper colored worms

According to American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) that repellents with DEET are safe to use on kids as young as 2 months old. Though AAP recommends that products for children should contain no more than 30 percent DEET.


Deep Woods OFF has 25% DEET and works well for chiggers and skeeters. I like the dry powder version...less messy.

As for the sulphur option, sulphur is not a great repellent for ticks. DWO with DEET handles ticks as well.
