Organic Chigger Control
I'm looking at controlling chiggers in our yard organically. It looks like I have 2 options: Beneficial Nematodes that are "somewhat effective" against chiggers and broadcasting sulphur at 5lbs/1,000 sqft.
Does anyone have any experience controlling chiggers organically? What is the impact to worms/beneficials if I broadcast the sulphur across the lawn?
I've also read that chiggers prefer long dry grass. I have bermuda that is maintained around 1.25" and is watered at approx 1" a week. For whatever the reason, our 2 year old still gets 5-10 bites a week from playing in the yard with the other kids on the street. They play mainly in our yard, and our dog has been bitten several times, so the problem has to be in our yard. Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated.
