I was wondering what the hell was biting me always on my waist band and ass (no joke). I was blaming everything from invisible mosquitoes to bed-bugs.
Then my girlfriend pointed out that bites in those specific locations are almost always chiggers. I then did a bit of reading and I'm sure that's what it is.
The problem now is, how the hell to lesson the numbers in the garden? It seems I almost always get these damn chigger bites when working in the garden. It's at the point where I won't even sit down to read anywhere near the garden.
Our damn environmentally-nutzo city hall has banned any type of pesticide use over the last few years, and the whole city has been up uproar at the mass outbreaks in tics and every other nasty thing you can think of, but the city hall refuses to budge on this environment issue, no matter the risk of lime disease to children & pets.
So... what can I do now? I'm getting tired of scratching my ass all day (sorry!)
