Help......we're getting eaten alive by chiggers :(
We've been on our property for 6 weeks now and we absolutely love Alabama. I have found time to plant a vegetable garden and even though I 'm getting a late start, it is coming right along. We have about 4 to 5 acres of mowing that we have to do so I'm wondering if that is throwing the chiggers up on to us. I try to keep the dogs and cats outside as much as possible and I do use frontline on them, so I assume that would kill the chiggers too.
I throw our gardening clothes into the laundry as soon as well come inside too. I'm sure you local gardeners must have a way to deal with them. What am I doing wrong?
Please give me any tips you have. My grand daughter is here visiting from Hawaii and she is starting to get bit too.
Thanks in advance :)
