Who found chiggers?
What are chiggers? Chiggers are tiny 6-legged creatures. They are known to attack people in wooded and/or damp areas. They are most commonly found during summertime whe…n grass and weeds grow the heaviest. Chiggers do not bury themselves into the skin like small ticks do; they bite near the hair follicles and produce red welts which can be very painful and itchy. Chiggers are very small and cannot be seen without a magnifying glass. They usually feed on snakes, birds, and mammals; even humans. Chiggers usually bite humans where clothing fits tightly or in places like waistlines, armpits, and behind the knees. Chiggers are not known to carry disease in the United States. When they bite, the symptoms can continue for about a week. If symptoms are not treated, then they become a secondary infection.
Any of various small, six-legged larvae of mites of the family Trombiculidae, parasitic on insects, humans, and other vertebrates. The chigger's bite produces a wheal …that is usually accompanied by severe itching. Also called chigoe, harvest bug; Also called harvest mite, jigger; Also called red bug.

Antiseptic kills chiggers to prevent from scratching but it does not stop the scratching right away
Chiggerex works very very well. Chiggers do not burrow under the skin. The bumps and redness are caused by a reaction to a digestive enzyme that the chigger mite injects into… your skin. Nail polish will not kill them because they are not on the skin when the reaction has developed.
Chiggers are found in California. They are found all over the world. They specifically are located in forests, woods, gardens, parks, and any moist areas.
if you go into a wooded area or some where with moss trees.That is where the chiggers like to hang and live.

Chiggers do not reproduce. Specifically, the term in question designates the larval stage of mites in the arthropod family Trombiculidae. An adult mite reproduce…s in one of two ways. Asexual reproduction results from the fact that each female mite in essence is "born pregnant," with the capability of delivering eggs -- which almost uniformly hatch into female clones -- without male involvement. Sexual reproduction nevertheless will produce eggs which will progress from prelarval, chigger, and nymph stages before becoming female or male mites.

Yes, in early summer, but depending on the lake it could be all summer. They are usually in more shallow water. My dad got them really bad. You can prevent them by towel dryin…g as soon as you get out of the lake and taking a cold shower. Air drying just lets them burrow in to your skin.
