chigger? There alot of old wives tales around chiggers: they burrow under your skin, they lay eggs in the whelp, or that they can be suffocated by applying nail polish. None of these is true. Their bites may feel like a parasite has entered your skin (and caused painful itchy bites that are slow to heal) but it's a feeding tube that the chigger has left behind.
One day, Mike walked his dog down the creek and decided not to spray. When he returned to the porch, one look at his thighs sent him into a panic. He was covered with thousands of chiggers! His upper thighs were crawling with so many chiggys he freaked - a quick shower, and he washed his clothes, bath towel, bath mat and bedding. He suffered several bites, but it could have been much worse
