  1. So much useful information here. I have no idea what bugs I will encounter when I move to NC. But I do know that bugs are a bit of a hassle for homesteaders. So, I guess … let the games begin!

  2. Oh how awful! We had really bad experiences with chiggers here in Texas last year! They got us everywhere. Useful info – thanks for sharing!

    Great article! My husband can totally relate, he gets attacked by these everytime we go to the off grid cabin in Kentucky…he we go again. 🙂

    1. Thank you!
      My three part defense plan worked! I treated my pants and socks with Permethrin before we left. I used cheap lice treatment spray from
      Walmart on my legs everyday. I also bathed using my homemade tick repelling soap everyday. It worked! Only a couple of bites! Only 1 tick adhered to my skin the entire time we were at the homestead. I’m thrilled. I’ll be posting my tick repelling soap recipe blends soon.
