If you were a kid in the South in the 50s and 60s you remember your Mom dotting chigger bites with nail polish. It was usually red so we all looked like we had chicken pox. It was thought that chiggers had burrowed into your skin and the nail polish would suffocate them.Ok guys..I can’t be sure how many of us Sako fans and outdoorsmen have been acquainted with these invisible little sons-a-bitches but I thought I’d ask…
I’m in full realization that once they have obtained access to areas of you body , the party begins.
What are the tricks you guys use to avoid contact with them?
I use the usual backwoods off and similar products to spray on before hand but Chiggers don’t care…they pass right through.
It was all a myth!
