  6. 6. Chigger Poem Oh why oh why do there have to be chiggers for a reaction in me they sure do trigger The many little red bites feel like Braille And when they itch they make me want to wail! If you like evolution, then you must love the chigger For they would not be as bad if they happened to be bigger But an invisible invertebrate has all the advantage And leaves me with little else than to put on a bandage. I guess I could prevent them by staying on the trail Or if I took more time to scratch them with my nail I could spray myself with nasty chemicals and deet Or stay inside all together and beat the summer heat! But that is not my style, I was born to explore To see the nature and learn from it more Plus if there were less chiggers there’d be more tourists And it would be impossible to be a nature purist.
  7. 7. Chigger Myths 1. If you can see the chigger, it is not a chigger! (they are invisible to the naked eye) 2.Fingernail polish may help the itching, but the chigger is long gone!
