I walked through all kinds of grass, weeds, and bushes in the pines 1-2 weeks ago and didn't get one chigger on me. I have read that chiggers are not active in temperatures below 60 degrees, and it was below 60 when I was out there, so maybe that's true...or maybe it was the 1/2 can of permethrin I sprayed on my pants and shoes?
I haven't seen any for awhile, but looks like we have a very warm week ahead with temperatures up into the 70's. Will need to look out for ticks. And I thought I could put away the permethrin for the year….
