chigger definition and meaning

What is a "chigger"?

A chigger is a tiny arachnid belonging to the family Trombiculidae. These minuscule pests are usually reddish-orange or yellowish in color and are commonly found in grassy and wooded areas. Chiggers are notorious for their bites, which can cause intense itching and discomfort. They typically attach themselves to the skin of mammals, including humans, and feed on their skin cells. Chigger bites are most prevalent during warm weather and can be prevented by using insect repellents and taking precautionary measures such as wearing long sleeves and pants when in chigger-prone areas.
