So are they are just bad if you are romping out in the woods or fields? Or they bad on a green lawn with a garden. Cant say Ohio had too many chiggers from what I remember.

I live in the woods, and it seems all I have to do is step out into the mowed yard! I had a friend in town ( now deceased) who got them in her lawn. My DH doen't have the problem that I have . I think it depends on your body chemistry. I am originally from Idaho ( lived here 31 years now) and had a terrible time coping with them until I learned about the antihistamine .

That depends on where you live. It's not a problem in most towns, but of course when I lived in the country, I sometimes got them from working in my garden. But mainly wading thru tall grass and underbrush is what gets you in trouble.

I never did this but thought about it. If you live in the country, get guineas. They supposedly have a very large appetite for bugs, esp ticks. And come to think about it, I had fewer problems when I had chickens. Chickens are not vegetarians.
