What Are the Little Orange Biting Bugs?

Chiggers are a species of mite in the Trombiculidae family that bite both people and animals. They leap onto their host while perched in tall grass or other plants, bite, and inject an enzyme that breaks down the victim’s skin cells. This frequently results in severe discomfort.

Chigger bites frequently develop into big, itchy, red lesions or hives that last for weeks. Chigger bite patients might apply an antihistamine cream topically on a daily basis until the bite heals to reduce pain and discomfort. After a few weeks, if chigger bites are still bothersome, a doctor can do an infection check.
