    What can I spray to get rid of chiggers ? They are hanging around the area of a customers deck and really getting to the customers.

    You need to use an ovicide/miticide. I'm a little tired right now and can't think of a particular brand. I bet Tremor will be able to better help you. Is there a Lesco close to you?

    Get to them before it's to cold for effective treatment. Then monitor & treat accordingly next year. This OSU link has a warning about the use of their recommended insecticides (Dursban) since the Fact Sheet is so likely to outlive the pestiides. Good call OSU. It did.

    That said, I'd use Lamda-cyhalothrin which is the active ingredient in both Battle & Scimitar. It provides a very quick knock down, long residual, no odor, less "skin tingle" (& longer residual) than Tempo, but is RUP.\docs\label\L38217.PDF
