I think this round of testing is full, but supposedly they have one next week in Harrisburg and one in the fall in State College. If I had asked a week before, I could have gone to the State College one...but I have to go to the Collegeville as I need it for showing and don't want to have to pay $200 to the people who are up in my area.
Chiggers are little pieces of Hades that are usually in tall grass. They burrow into your skin and itch so bad you want to rip your legs apart (or if you're very unlucky and it's very tall grass, other parts of your body). You can't see them while they're on you...only once the bites/burrows show up in about a day or two. They sell chigger-rid which supposedly gets rid of the itch...it doesn't. One good way to kill them is to use Vinegar and Ammonia. Or you can use nail polish...
Just be glad. They're awful. Stink bugs were ALL over my corn last year! I will never grow corn again! They got all over my tomatoes!!!
I got into contact with Dr. Simeone with the Dept. of Ag.
