    Buy powdered garden sulfur, place a baseball sized amount in the toe area, tie a simple overhand knot in the top and use to dust the tops of boots, socks and putside of pants. Also around the waist and cuffs of the shirt.  

    It will smell a little and you will need shower but the relief from the itch is priceless.

    Store the sock in an old coffee can or jar.  I've used this system since 1957 and when I'm in chigger country and don't, I regret it. Works for ticks as well.

    The dogs and cats will smile after the first use on them (outside) as this will drive off the ticks and fleas within minutes.
