Pat from Parkesburg, Pa writes,

Will this CB PCO fogger be appropriate for a chigger infestation inside our house?

These bugs we were told by a bug expert are chiggers. It is mostly small, tiny bugs, some black, some red and are so tiny we can hardly see them. They are everywhere! On our beds, floors and on and in our clothes. We have our fleece slippers on floor and the bugs crawl on, in and around our slippers. And they bite! Is this fogger a good choice to use? These things are driving me crazy. Please help!

Answer:

CB PCO Fogger with Pyrethrins would not likely be helpful for a chigger infestation as it will only kill insects that directly exposed during the application. Further, we recommend you get a second opinion as to the identification of the pest you are dealing with because chiggers are very unlikely to infest houses and they are not active in the winter. We recommend reading the this article: Chiggers, HYG 2100-98 for accurate information on chiggers and why we believe the identification is incorrect.
