Kill, Repel & Prevent Pests

Get Rid of Chiggers in 3 Easy Steps

Did you know... Contrary to popular belief, chiggers do not burrow into skin or suck your blood, but rather drink your skin through a straw-like mouth part.

3 Step Guide




Step 1
Protect Yourself and Pets

The nearly microscopic mites known as chiggers (aka harvest mites or berry bugs) deliver an infamously itchy, long-lasting bite. To protect yourself, simply mist your skin and clothing with Cedarcide Original Bug Spray before heading outside.

For dogs, apply Cedarcide Original to their coat and rub it into their skin. Use your hands to apply to their face, and reapply every 1–3 days. For cats, apply with your hands or a cloth, and reapply weekly.

Step 2
Spray Your Lawn

You don’t have to use toxic sprays or services to enjoy a chigger-free yard. Just  spray your lawn with non-toxic Cedarcide Outdoor Bug Control twice, two weeks apart, and then monthly for prevention after that. For extra repellency, apply bug-repelling Cedarcide Granules throughout your lawn every 4–6 weeks.

Step 3
Prevent Chiggers from Coming Back

Chiggers prefer spaces with dense vegetation, higher moisture levels, and access to wildlife. If you keep your lawn mowed, organized, free of leaky hoses or sprinklers, and deter wildlife, you’ll have far fewer chigger problems.

Lastly, make sure to protect you and your pets with Cedarcide Original before heading into the woods or tall grass. Otherwise, you risk accidentally bringing chiggers back home and introducing them into your lawn.
