For the past couple of years, when the leaves start to change colors and fall, we begin to complain about these itchy bits. Well last year was a bad year and I feel like the year before was as well. Well they are back. I was mowing the yard yesterday and afterwards I found about 5 bites on my arms and legs.
We have lots of posts from previous years about itch mites; what to do, what are they, and more. I will list them below. But spread the word about itch mites. Be cautious of children that may be playing outside during the day or your self. These things really itch!
