There was a plenty of them in SE Nebraska. They especially like ankles, waist lines, and the giblets just below the waist line. ARGH The no-see-ums in Florida are just as bad only smaller.

For reasons I can't explain we do not seem to have chiggers here in southwest Va. Please don't bring us any.

You can find them throughout the world, but they are most common in the south, southeast, and midwest in the US. Chiggers are particularly active between early spring and early autumn. They become less active after the seasonís first frost. Their preferred temperature range is from 77 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit, and they die when temperatures fall below 42 degrees.

PA has them. Worse infestation I ever had came from groundhog hunting when I was a kid of twelve or thirteen years old. I fell asleep behind a hay bale while watching for woodchucks to show themselves.

The next day and for a week after I suffered as dozens of them fed off me.


Eh...wot?

There must be side effects if it's sold through a druggist???

Chigger's are the state bird in Virginia. I am eat up with them right now, 3 weeks of torture. Those worthless bloodsuckers are like politicians, serve no purpose other than to bleed you dry.

Fortunately they don't seem to care for me. Dad would get them a lot, but I've never had them. I've lived in places where they are prevalent, such as Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina.

Used to just be on a shelf in the drug store, didnít need a prescription or anything like that.

They leave me alone. I know some people that just the act of going outside attracts chiggers to them.

Not many places to get sulpher anymore, but no it is not a drug and no perscription required. And no side effects that I have ever heard!

People talk about them here but I don't think I have had them. Certainly nothing that lasted days.

Trillions of them here and they love me. My dad and I spent a day cutting weeds in a bean field one day before we left my mom said we should spray down for chiggers. My dad told her he had never got a chigger from a benfield. The next day he was right he had zero while mom counted over 4 hundred on me. Needless to say my dad got in trouble for that.

We definitely have them where I'm at in MO. I try to stay out of the weeds this time of year and stick to the more open timber. I can usually keep them off of me now my boy on the other hand has them on him all the time! He also has been stung by wasps about 6 times in the past 2 months where it is rare if I get stung once a year.
