Chigger prevention the natural way.
There are several ways to help prevent chiggers from attacking. If using harsh chemicals, such as deet does not appeal to you, there is a product called Best Yet. It is a 10% cedar oil and 90% hydrated silica. We have used it for several months with great success. Not only does it prevent chiggers, but mosquitos, fleas, ticks, and many more trouble makers. Whether you use a deet based repellant or a natural one, always wash off after being out in the woods or grass. Chiggers will hang out in your clothes for a period of time, so remember to shake or brush off your clothes, especially socks, prior to putting them back on. Preventing these pesky guys from chewing into your skin will be the best thing you can do on any trip to the outdoors.
