Default How to Get rid of chiggers

With summer just around the corner and the family spending more time outside insects such as chiggers can become an annoying hindrance to outdoor activities. Luckily, there are ways to deal with the little buggers with a little effort and some key items.

Follow these tips to get rid of chiggers before they cause intense itching.
You Will Need

* Mosquito repellent
* Well-maintained yard
* Bath
* Towel
* Cold cream
* Baby oil
* Nail polish

Step 1: Apply mosquito

Apply mosquito repellent to exposed skin to get rid of chiggers.

Step 2: Clean your yard

Clean your yard of tall grass, brush, and weeds. Chiggers will not survive in areas that are well maintained.

Step 3: Bathe in soapy water

Take a bath in warm soapy water as soon as you are exposed.

Soapy water will remove any attached chiggers.

Step 4: Wash clothes in soapy water

Remove and wash your clothes in hot soapy water immediately after exposure.

Step 5: Rub with towel

Remove attached chiggers by rubbing down the affected skin area with a towel. Chiggers will feed for 3 to 4 days in an area if not disturbed.

Step 6: Apply cold cream, baby oil, and nail polish

Seal the affected skin with cold cream, baby oil, and nail polish to alleviate itching.

Itching will occur until the body neutralizes the chigger’s saliva and repairs tissue damage.

Step 7: Enjoy the summer

Enjoy the hot summer months without all the itching.

Chiggers are only 1/150th of an inch in diameter.
