Are Your Pets In Need of A Chigger Treatment?
I have been searching of the ultimate chigger treatment for a long long time. I have ve been the victim of so many chigger attacks I feel like I must have “chigger bait” written on me somewhere and those silly chiggers can read.
I learned after many years of sad experience, that dogs and cats carry chiggers pretty much like a mother possom carries her young. That is fastened to them anywhere they can hang on. I had never given a thought to pets being a carrier of misery.
Is it any wonder everytime a body pets or holds or hugs their pets after the pet has been outside for a romp they might have an attack of chiggers. All this while they just know they have not been out in the grass or in the woods.
“Where in the world did those chiggers come from?” Now you know. Do not pet your pet if they have been out beating the bush where chiggers live.
If you want a really good dose of chiggers just park yourself where your pet has been roosting after being outside.
It is necessary to perform a chigger extermination on your pet before you let them back in the house. There are some oils you can apply to your pet to help deter chiggers from hitching a ride on them. Or you can bath them with pretty hot, soapy water if you desire.
(I do not recommned flea collers and such for your pets. They carry deadly toxins and you are exposing your pets and their health to these toxins. If you truly love your pet, find something natural to indoctrinate them.)
If you have been doing this thing, letting your pets back in the house and you are getting chigger bites the best advice I can offer is move out of the house.
Actually, after you have decided on how to handle the pet issue you may need to clear up the chigger problem in the house.
Wash all of your exposed linen in really hot water with good soap and water and a shot of bleach. And dry on high heat. And I do mean anything exposed to your pets.
Did I mention you should also wash your contaminated clothing the same way? No? Do I really need to?
As for upholstery, I would suggest some kind of steam cleaning for upholstered furniture and the carpets.
I know how you feel. Been there and done that. I feel your pain and frustration of trying to find a chigger treatment that works, much less a natural chigger treatment that works. So it is my desire to pass on the benefit of my experience. Use it and pass it on if it is useful to you.
