Chigger Control in Ovilla, TX

Are you seeking assistance with chiggers in Ovilla?

Chiggers are microscopic, predatory mitesthat feed on the skin cells of other animals, including humans. They are known to infest the outdoor areas surrounding our Ovilla homes, but indoor infestations happen occasionally as well. Once inside, chiggers will hide in any available crevice and are likely to be found in the same places you frequent most. They have just one thing in mind: they are waiting for you to get close enough to grab onto!

Chiggers are the immature stage of mites; they are more closely related to spiders than insects. Chiggers do not burrow into skin or suck blood. They pierce the skin with their mouthparts. Itching starts about 3 hours after the initial bite, the area then turns red. 

When a chigger bites, you probably won’t feel it at first. Chiggers release an analgesic in their saliva that makes your skin numb. But as painless as their bite may be initially, misery assuredly lies ahead. Soon, clusters of tiny red bumps begin to appear, and then the itching kicks in. Over the course of a few days, those bumps typically swell to large, ugly blisters and that itching becomes sheer torment. Cold compresses and antihistamines may help somewhat, but it will likely be weeks before you feel total relief. As parasitic pests go, the chigger is one of the worst in Ovilla. If you’ve been bitten, you already know that and, if you want to get rid of them, professional help is a must.
