Wondering how far north they live. Been supporting a small colony for about two weeks.

I have never had a chigger bite except when I lived in FT. Benning. LLL

Be a lot easier to list the places that don’t have them.

I'm in central MD and have miserably hosted chiggers from lower Dorchester County on the eastern shore to Allegheny County to the west. Never got them in our far west county, Garrett, but almost every other one. Had 67 at one time once.


The beatings will continue until morale improves.

We have them but they do not like me. Ticks that’s another issue

I have never lived among blackflies, but I will say that, of the biting arthropods, chiggers are my least favorite. I would rather have a dose of poison ivy.

I have never heard of a chigger here, but some folks swear we have them.

We have them here in southeast SD. If I go down in the heavier, "wild" veg near the creeklet, I usually get some but up on the lawn, usually nada. We used to get them bad down at Lewis & Clark Boy Scout Camp, west of Yankton. It seems that tree cover, tall grass, and wetter conditions seem to have them. I don't know if they ar e in north SD or ND. Maybe there is a chigger and grinner lines that overlap further north grin

No chiggers in Alaska.

The worst biting insect I've encountered is the tsetse fly in Africa.

Tennessee is full of them as is most army posts from what I remember. Ft Bragg NC was the worst.

Plenty in N MO. They don't seem to be noticeable until the end of June.

We always have a bumper crop of them here. When I was a kid we would dust with sulfur to repel them when we picked blackberries.

Easy to keep off of you. Get some sulpher from a druggest, shake a half teaspoon down each leg, or put in your pockets. Works slick, I've never got a chigger when I do that! We have a bumper crop of them here!
