How to Get Rid of Chiggers In Your Home


There’s one sentence you can never say in your entire life, and that is “Chiggers are completely harmless little bugs”.

While these vermin are little, they are complete opposite of harmless. If you’d ever have the displeasure of seeing their bites, you’d know why they are avoided like a plague. And avoid we must, if we want to live our lives without being in constant fear of these tiny little pests.

It’s comical how these tiny creatures that we can’t even see can really mess with us badly. Their bite not only looks hideous ugly on our skins, but they also pack a punch. Their presence has a way of getting in our heads so if you have caught sight of those in your home, then please, by all means, panic.

You must at once get rid of chiggers, but before that, you might want to know a little more about them.

What we need to know about Chiggers

The chigger mites are also called berry bugs. These little pests are only 1/150th of an inch in length but can cause some seriously large damage. If you end up being bitten by them, then the entire bitten area will itch and annoy like nothing else. It also looks too red for anyone’s comfort. And just to test our patience and persistence, we are advised not to scratch or rub the bitten area; even if that’s the only thing you want to do at the time, and badly.

Because of their small unfathomably small size, we can only, barely see them with our naked eyes. Once they start breedingin an area, there’s not much anyone can do to avoid their wrath, doing something even as simple as passing by them can result in various bites. Chiggers effectively latch on to human skin and begin to feed on their blood. And when they are dropped away, they leave a large bump exactly where they had been shamelessly enjoying their Caribbean drink. And if they are left undisturbed, this free loader will keep enjoying the drink for days.

The juvenile kinds of berry bugs have six legs and they are the ones that like human blood. The adult chiggers rival spiders with their eight legs.

Preventing Chiggers from Invading your Homes

Chiggers are real trouble, and you must do everything in your power to prevent them. Here are some ideas:

  • Chiggers come out in full force during the summers and spring and their favourite place to hide is in the forest and foliage. So if you ever decide to go camping, hiking, trailing, walking or just hanging out in the forest, be sure to pass without touching anything. This might sound ridiculous, but try to walk as much in the center as possible.

  • Also, wear full sleeved shirts, and pants long enough that they get tucked inside your socks and allow these vermin no access to your skin.

  • Always go out with a tick repellent in your hand and spray yourself all over.

  • Wash your clothes with hot water and take a shower the second you return from your trip.

  • Even if the chiggers have left your house and no longer are a problem, make sure you keep spraying the insecticides, once every month to make sure they do not return.

Don’t let these little chiggers ruin your day, or your life with their ugly biting habits. Bring the insecticides now and knock them down for good.  If you need more helpful information in eliminating Chiggers or any other pest problem you may encounter, reach out to us at 800-479-6583, email us at askapro@solutionsstores.com or go on our website and start up a live chat with an expert representative.
