Like the screen window behind an exhaust fan that blew the scent of me, cats and a dog by her. Or the one who hung out on the rim of a small bucket I used for scooping birdseed. For months. I would pass my hand over her on my way past just to see her respond by standing on her back legs and waving at the air. She was responding to the heat of my hand. I have grown to detest them over the decades, especially the nearly-invisible nymphs in the fall. I’ve been infected with both Lyme and Spotted Fever, so I have some reason for my detestation. Now I find chiggers positively attractive by comparison. I look forward to trying the hatching thing, I no longer have a dog, but I’ll bet I can borrow a fat tick from the neighbors. rb

No ticks this year for me…or I’d have done it!
