Anyone getting bitten?

Postby mudpack » Sat Sep 14, 2013 8:01 am

I hunted Tues through Friday this week, and I am covered with bug bites. My wife counts over 50 bites from my waist up. They are not mosquito bites; they don't look the same, and they are mostly in places mosquitoes could not have gotten to. :biggrin:
Some of them are so nasty they've become BB-sized red, painful blisters. Others look more like chigger bites; tiny itchy little things in groups of 5-6. I know the kochia has midges in it in unbelievable numbers, but biting insects?

Anyone else experiencing the same thing??


Please, Lord, let it get cold.


Edit: update number of bites.....

The worst thing about chiggars is not having anyway to tell when and where they will strike! Sometimes they are in the lawn of houses but mostly not. Sometimes they strike in the woods but sometimes they don't. If there was just some way to know how to avoid them.
