Rub bacon grease on affected areas of skin. Itching will stop immediately and chigger bites will disappear in 2 or 3 days.

I recently purchased a farm and have been doing a lot of work there. I gave up counting the number of chigger bites I have, and the itching is making me insane.

I tried the bacon grease (hesitantly) and I must say that it is true!!! The itching stopped immediately. In 3 days, I'll know if the other part works - that they'll be gone! I'm counting on it!

Thanks a million for this suggestion!!!

I just went out to the 'country' here in Central Texas to do a garden plan as a favor to a new gardener.
Came home covered in every tight clothes place with chigger bites.
I was going nuts with them today when I came upon your site. I didn't have bacon grease but I keep chicken fat (skimmed from boiling the chicken) in a container in the freezer for poison oak and poison ivy. Tried it and it stopped the itching instantly too.
Thank you thank you thank you.
BTW Putting chicken fat like a salve on poison oak with stop the itching for 8 hours and clear it up in 3 days.
If you get it before it blisters it will actually prevent the blisters from forming. Save my sons eye and kept him off of prednisone at a critical growth time of his life.
Blessings.

I don't know who first came up with bacon grease to stop the itch of chigger bites but it does work almost immediately..After my morning shower, I blew the bites with a hair dryer till it almost burnt me and then applied the bacon grease..Itch is all gone.

Warm bacon grease....or cold?
Does it make a difference?

Also, do you then rub it off or just leave a light coating of it on and smell delicious all day?
