We travel a lot to chiggery and ticky areas, and before we go we spray our socks and pants with permethrin, allow them to air outside over several days, and pack. The permethrin stays in the fabric over several washes. Works well, we have never had much issue with chiggers.

I got there with hopes of finding Blackpoll, Cape May, and Bay-Breasted, but today I didn't find any of those. Still, obviously, a good day there. But watch out for the biting flies. They seem to love white socks. And it takes a good deal of repellant to dissuade them. One migration forecast says big movement tonight--so tomorrow will hopefully be good birding.
