Defense is the best offense here.Prevention of being bitten by using 100% Deet repellent is best. Also washing your clothes in 20 Mule Team Borax may help as some borax residue will kill/repel the larvae. Borates tend to dehydrate ticks, chigger larvae and other certain pest even termites.

If bitten I use a product called Chigger Rid. It can be purchased at Walgreens or Wal-Mart. It is like a nail polish, but also has ether in the formula. Brush it over the bite and the itching stops. reapply when necessary, the less you scratch the better. I think if the larve is still there, the either kills it.

If outdoors also wear light colored clothing - dark colors supposedly attract the chiggers.
