Soaked last night. No itching today.
Also, I was watching Survivorman on the Science Channel (in HD). A lot of you guys would like that show. This guy gets dropped off in the middle of nowhere (Alaska, Georgia swamp, etc). He has to survive for a week. He brings only his clothes and a few odds and ends, plus his cameras (the production crew leaves). He makes fishing line floaters out of bubble gum, drinks water out of roots, etc. Pretty cool.
Anyway, in the swamp, he needed to make the area where he built his shelter tick and chigger free. So he did a controlled burn in the area to kill/drive out the bugs. I guess they eventually come back, but at least you start bug free.
Now I'm off to Permetrin treat my stuff. Thanks for the information.
