Going to bat against your chiggers in Garland, Plano, Richardson & Rowlett
Chiggers are tiny mites that, while in the larval stage, bite humans and pets. They become most active in the summer season and thrive in areas with thick vegetation like grasses or brush. It is a common belief that chiggers feed on the blood of their host and burrow under the skin. In actuality, chiggers don’t burrow under the skin and they don’t feed on blood. Chigger mite larva need a protein source for the ability to grow into it’s next life cycle stage. It gets this protein from the liquids of animal or human skin cells. The bites cause skin irritation and extreme itching to humans and animals.

Common Parasites Found around Dallas
Chigger mites, ticks and fleas all fall under the parasite category. They either feed off the blood of humans, like fleas and ticks, or the skin cells of pets and humans like chigger mites. These pests can find their way into your Dallas home or business in a variety of ways. Chiggers, ticks and fleas thrive in tall grass and wild brush. They can be introduced to a yard space by foraging wildlife like rodents, rabbits and raccoons.
The best way to remove parasites like chiggers, ticks and fleas is to use a broadcast spray in the yard area. The spray includes a low toxicity pesticide that will remove adult populations and a growth regulator that prevents eggs that hatch after the service from breeding. The spray will absorb into hard to reach areas like wood piles, compost heaps and thick vegetation.
Chigger Control Protection Plans
Chigger control can be added to your standard protection program. To treat standard pests, we will begin by conducting a thorough inspection of the property. Once we determine the scope of the infestation, we will then apply a low toxicity, low odor pesticide to the yard and perimeter of the home, setting up a barrier to keep pests out of your house.
We recommend beginning our Quarterly Perimeter Pest Protection program to keep chiggers away. Our quarterly service comes with a 30 day guarantee for chiggers. We’ll come out 4 times a year to maintain a pest-free perimeter around your home. If you would like additional coverage against chiggers, we recommend adding our yard protection program.
