In June, 2011 I received many chigger bites while cutting under brush around the edge of the yard even though I soaked in salt water afterwards. The next time I cut brush, I put a half cup of ice cream salt (all I had) in a white sock and tied the end. In the shower, I scrubbed hard all over with the salt filled sock in as hot water I could stand. Soap making is one of my hobbies so I soaped up good and shampooed afterward with Neem Oil soap (I use it on my pets for killing fleas). Since ice cream salt doesn't melt easily, I untied the sock, emptied the salt in a container and hung the sock to dry. I had no new chigger bites, hope this works for you.
