My chigger prevention, put about a 1/2 - 1 cup sulphur in an athletic sock, tie it off, dust my waist, ankles, etc., store the sock in a ziplock bag. Works well for me. Hate the scrotum biting bastages!

I was ate up with seed ticks and chiggers. All the bunks were full of them. I never scratched so much in my life.

What I have found works for me is to take a Zyrtec if I know I am going be in taller grass or weeds that have chiggers. I found this out about 3 or 4 yrs ago when I got chiggers on my ankles. I had allergies bad that same day and took a Zyrtec and noticed the chigger bite did not itch anymore. May not work for you but it works great for me.

I know God made all creatures, but he is going to have to explain chiggers, mosquitoes, and fire ants to me when I get to heaven. Skinner is right, if you get them bad you will almost set yourself on fire to get rid of them.
Sulphur is about only thing I have ever found to really deter them.

OMG they used to get me when I was a kid and would traipse all over the farm. Holy crap it would itch so bad for a few days! HORRIBLE

Also works for mosquito bites, you can get some relief if you take any antihistamine pills.

We have had so much rain at the farm the cows can't even begin to keep up with the grass. It is already 2' tall in places and I can see it being 3' in the next couple of weeks. Prime habitat for chiggers. They don't bother me(knock on wood) but the grand-kids got a few bites.

Quote
During the wet season, chiggers are usually found in tall grass and other vegetation.[26] During dry seasons, chiggers are mostly found underneath brush and shady areas.[25][27] Standing still or lying in tall grass gives them more time to climb onto a person.

I have a couple of harmless mud daubers in my house. They are worrying the snot out of me.
