i am not 100% sure that they are chiggers since everything i read about chiggers didn't mention they can fly. out on my patio there is an infestation of some very tiny reddish looking bug. they are all over my petunias and i also saw some on the umbrella fabric. they are in the air too when i put down the umbrella. they are not gnats though....smaller than that. they get on you and bite you and make you feel all itchy. please tell me someone knows what this is! and how to get rid of them!! i haven't had this problem other years. i really need to get rid of them because my son is having a birthday party out there on saturday!!
