Great, they're back! 😩 

If the MDC (or any other) biologists were worth 1/3 of their pay scale, they would figure out something a person could do to either keep them off of you, or keep from feeling them eating on you.   Even after dousing and scrubbing my legs in rubbing alcohol, and then hand cleaner and a long rinse in cold water......Still they are eating away.    

I can't stand this!!!! 🤪

You just want to shoot me with a BB gun.  You can't fool me.

Precisely.  Just like these oak mites.  No whites tonight.  4 blow ups on the pop R.  This one stayed pinned.    

I goofed on the White action too.  Was out a bit early for the blitz, so started throwing poppers for green bass.  Ended up having so much fun that I stayed with them until dark.  Let the Whites have

Bull!   None of that works!     

The itching burning will stop eventually on its own, but I have tried EVERYTHING I can think of or find info on, to keep from experiencing it in the first place, and nothing I've tried prevents them from doing their thing.   I have been covered in oil and grease, bug spray, deet, ect....and STILL it hasn't stopped them.      Once they are on you, you're screwed for 2-4 hours it seems.  All it takes is 3 steps into the wrong spot and you're in for it.

They must immediately crawl/dive into your pores or something.

Don't reckon I've ever had the mites on me,  but I don't believe any crawling insect can walk or breathe in a full coating of baby oil.  I know it keeps seed ticks and chiggers at bay, from many summer days spent cutting fire wood or picking wild berries.

I can't understand how they operate.   I assume that they cover the ground and when you step into them it fluffs them up onto your legs like dust particles, then they just immediately bore into your skin or go into your pores.   

Some people's skin may react to them differently, but my skin starts itching and burning like hell.   It just makes me want to saw my legs off.  .

Oak mites?   Riiigghhht.   Never heard of em.   Are they like buffalo gnats😂

I still haven't met my first buffalo gnat, but they can't be anything as bad as oak mites.     It's always during this late Summer/early Fall period.     I have trails leading from my yard into the woods and I DARE YOU to take 10 steps into either of those trails right now.    Absolute misery.
