Both ticks and chiggers are at high population levels this year. We frequently get this question and there is not a commercial applicator available. Control strategies include mowing the grass and clearing underbrush to reduce habitat. One recommendation for repellent of chiggers is sulphur. Chiggers hate sulphur and definitely avoid it. Powdered sulphur, called sublimed sulphur or flowers of sulfur, is available through most pharmacies. Dust the powdered sulphur around the opening of your pants, socks and boots.
