We had common brown tick on our Dog in April, there was still snow on the ground! They seem to have survived our very cold winter here in Ontario.

Can anyone vouch for the Windex on chiggers suggestion? Wondering if this is legit or a reference to My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Happy camping.

Probably some truth to it. There is a product called "Afterbite" and some if its imitators where the primary ingredient is ammonia. Works pretty well at controlling itch. And most glass cleaners contain ammonia.

Be advised, Afterbite type products, burn like crazy on application!

We use Benadryl spray on chiggers. We clean the heck out of the chigger bit then wipe good with alcohol the spray the area with Benadryl. You can clean the area real good and spray or apply anything that will seal the area of oxygen like hairspray, finger nail polish, Benadryl, spray paint, duct tape, just anything to seal out the air and it will kill the chigger we've used it all. With the itch you will use what ever you can to get relief. LOL Ticks well just get them off asap and clean the spot. I don't know about any allergy to beef thing I've been bit by ticks my whole life I eat beef, venison, pork, chicken, lamb, never bothered me. We spray around our shoes and socks and then they don't get on you to start with. Deep woods off is our buddy here in Texas and the mosquitos are worse than ticks. A light spray of any Deet product will hold the ticks and fleas and chiggers off. Always spray around your shoes and socks when in tall grass or walking around in the woods getting firewood or hiking or a tick and chigger will find you.
