Chiggers

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Chiggers Dangerous?

While Chiggers are not dangerous in the sense of causing life-threatening harm, their bites can cause intense itching, swelling, and red welts on the skin. In some cases, the bites can become infected due to excessive scratching, requiring medical attention.

Why do I have a Chigger problem?

Chiggers are attracted to areas with suitable hosts, such as rodents or birds, and tall grass or vegetation. If your property has these conditions, it can attract Chiggers, which can then latch onto humans or pets when they come into contact with the infested area.

Where will I find Chiggers?

Chiggers can be found in grassy or wooded areas, especially those with tall grass, brush, and dense vegetation. They are typically found in areas where their preferred hosts, such as rodents or birds, are likely to be present.

How do I get rid of Chiggers?

To get rid of Chiggers, you should first mow your lawn regularly, remove tall grass, and trim back vegetation. Applying insecticides specifically designed for Chiggers can help control their population. However, for the most effective results, you should consider hiring a professional pest control service.

How can I prevent Chiggers?

Preventing Chiggers involves maintaining your lawn and property, avoiding areas with tall grass and dense vegetation, and using insect repellent when spending time outdoors. Additionally, it's important to address any rodent or bird issues on your property that might be attracting Chiggers.

What are Chiggers

Chiggers (Trombiculidae) are tiny, red mites found primarily in grassy or wooded areas. The larvae are parasitic and feed on the skin of animals and humans, causing intense itching and discomfort. Adult chiggers are harmless and feed on plant matter. Chiggers are most active in warm weather, typically from spring to early fall. They are often found in areas with tall grass, brush, and vegetation where their hosts, such as rodents or birds, are likely to be found.
