The problem with chiggers begins when a person is walking through an infested area and come into contact with them. Once on your clothing, the chiggers will migrate to an area of skin. They can usually be found congregating behind knees, in armpits, around ankle areas, and in the groin area. While almost invisible, these parasites make their presence well-known when living on a person. Their bites cause red welts and a red colored rash that is extremely itchy and uncomfortable to deal with.

To protect you and your family from coming into contact with these problematic pests on your Minnesota property, the Edina pest control experts at Adam’s Pest Control want to provide you with some easy to follow prevention tips. The first thing that you can do to protect yourself from coming into contact with chiggers is to realize that insect repellant is your friend. When you know that you will be spending time outside, particularly in an area that may be attractive to chiggers, apply a mosquito repellant that contains DEET. Also, while it may not be a great fashion statement, it is a good idea to wear long sleeves and long pants that are tucked into your socks, when gardening or spending time outside in dense areas of vegetation or on the banks of rivers or streams. After spending time outside, immediately take a warm shower and use plenty of soap to help wash away any chiggers that are present on your body. To help make your property less attractive to chiggers our professionals suggest reducing areas of dense vegetation, keeping your property’s lawn mowed short, and trimming overgrown bushes and grasses back from your yard.
