Now I am kind of glad I missed Lance's Ride to Chiggers! Chigger bites are just as bad as poison ivy, it is what soured me to early season deer hunting - that and the heat and the chiggers and skeeters.

Now that sounds like a potential future movie - which I plan to make regardless of the feature.

We missed ya Tom. Other than the unfortunate incident with the chiggers Lance is quite the host.

Yea, early deer season, eff that I'll be back when them weather cools and the little devil bugs go back to whatever part of hell they came from.

Tom, here is chiggers 101 from a fellow hunter. This is the life cycle of the Harvest Mite. The nymph and adult stages are harmless to us. They eat plants and tiny insects. It is the larvea stage we hate so much and call chiggers. The eggs hatch in late summer early fall (now). After hatching they climb a plant and ball up together and wait for you to come strolling by.

They DO NOT burrow under your skin. They grab you as you go by and scramble for a spot to bite. Ankles, beltlines, watchbands. Moist thin skinned areas is what they are looking for. They DO NOT suck blood. They inject you with an enzyme that breaks down skin cells. The walls of the injection spot harden and makes like a straw and they suck the broken down tissue up. Once they have a good feed they fall off and return to the dirt. This is when they move on to the harmless nymph stage. Frost DOES NOT kill chiggers. They must feed within 24hrs of hatching or they die. By the time our first frost comes here they are either dead or adult stage Harvest Mites. This is why most guys think the frost kills them. Harvest Mite larvea cannot survive temps below 60 degrees. Adults and nymphs can. So by the time the cool days of October roll around they are usually gone.

There is no cure for chigger bites. Using a hydrocortisone cream will relieve some itching but thats about all you can do. The 4 to 6 week itch is usually a result of scratching threw the skin and a secondary infection occurs. If you can resist breaking the skin it will usually be gone in a week. I know WTF are you nutts lol. They are the itchiest thing going so when I get them I concede to the 4 to 6 weeks.

Use the deet spray, wear lite colored cloths and for gods sake USE A LINT ROLLER. They just plain work. Sounds silly but it takes them right off ya

I can't wait to get back from my trip and start hunting.

Felt damn good to spend 3 days in the woods away from the crap of DC, even if it was on 4 wheels not 2.

That's a great spot - I rode through there today on my return. Thought you could have squeezed the bike in the bed for a short ride

Eric, what site were you and Syl on? My wife and I were just there in early August (that's where we spend our anniversaries). I think we were on the lower loop, site 2.
