How do we get rid of chiggers at our cabin in mid LA?
We are in our 70's and can't go outside in the Spring , Summer or Fall with out getting multiple bites even when we are riding a mower. It's an awful infestation.
Onslaught is a great product for chigger control. Treatments for chiggers should begin in April/May and could need to continue through the summer as new chiggers move into the area. Treating the entire lawn is of little benefit because chiggers avoid direct sunlight and normally will not infest areas that are mowed or otherwise well maintained. Focus treatment on the unkempt areas of the lawn and lawn edge. You can also use Onslaught to do a barrier treatment around the outside of your home and in your crawl space to stop pests from moving indoors.
