Chigger Control / Chigger Spraying In The Kansas City Area
Chiggers, also known as red bugs or harvest mites, are tiny, bright red mites that are commonly found in yards, gardens, fields, meadows, berry patches, and other outdoor areas in the Midwest. These mites are not insects, but rather arachnids, and they are notorious for causing intense itching and irritation when they bite
Chiggers are most active during the warmer months, from early spring to late autumn. Once a chigger attaches itself to your body, it moves around to find a good spot to feed. Typically, it seeks out a thin layer of skin or any barrier that it can penetrate, such as a waistband or sock. The chigger's bites are often painless at first, but they can cause an intensely itchy welt that can last for several days. The bites are easily identifiable by their red pimple-like sore.
The presence of chiggers is typically marked by small, intensely red, pimple-like welts on the skin. These welts can be very itchy and may take several days or even weeks to heal. To reduce the risk of chigger bites, it is recommended to wear long pants and sleeves when spending time in areas where chiggers are known to be present. You should also avoid sitting or lying directly on the ground and try to stay in the center of walking paths or trails.
