  • Dealing with Summer pests: Chiggers


    Chiggers are the immature stage of certain mite species, and just talking about them may make you itch. You’ll find them most often in overgrown, bushy areas. They also congregate in shady, humid areas near stream banks, under or around shade trees or in berry thickets.

    After they hatch, larvae crawl around until they find and attach to a suitable host. Chiggers feed on humans as well as a variety of wild and domestic animals, including snakes, turtles, birds, rodents and domestic pets such as dogs and cats.

  • Dealing with Summer pests:Ticks

    The lone star tick and the American dog tick are the most common tick species found on humans and companion animals in Kentucky, and are threats to everyone who works, plays, hunts, hikes, or camps in or around overgrown or undisturbed areas.

    Reactions to bites vary from person to person based on the body’s response to the salivary mix injected as ticks feed. The effects of the lone star tick’s bite can linger for 7 to 10 days. Both species are potential vectors of diseases, but the chances of encountering an infected tick are low.
