Itch mites in IL
Well, yes, I got them and they are awful. I am better now but a week ago I could not sleep the itch was so bad. I wrote to four PHD entomologists at U of I. They all replied and one of them just happened to be doing a study on what is going on. He had not yet caught any. However, I hear that today they have a sample. My concern is - I live in a heavily wooded area - I have decks - I have a pond - will I ever be able to enjoy them again. Enough whine (wine) - I will keep you posted if I get updates but it looks like they will be here till frost!!!!!!
Anyone else got bit?
