I recently disturbed a pile of rotted logs and got stung (or bit) by something I could not see. I was told it was chiggers. It stings for about 1 day then becomes a red swollen itchy area. What can I use outside and on the bites.

Bayer Advanced Lawn & Garden Multi-Insect Killer, Bayer Power Force Ant Killer Ready-to-Use Granules, and Bayer Power Force Multi-Insect Killer Ready-to-Spread Granules are all registered for use against chiggers. Be sure to apply according to label directions. For your own safety, be sure to use a Deet product on your skin when in the area.
