I use gaiters (sp) that I bought several years ago that were made by buckwing. They are made of a stretchy material that is kind of like an elbow brace. Works well for keeping chiggers, ticks, redbugs etc from crawling up my pant leg.

FWIW...I hate bug BITES! Guess cause of all the danged allergies, but I swell up something awful at a bug bite site and it STAYS swollen and itches like fire for 2 weeks. Chiggers? Had em last year and didn' know you could get em in PA! I about scratched myself raw
Been using the permanone spray for years. I find that by laying out my clothes, spraying till damp, my full head covering, hat, gloves, shirts, pants, socks...and letting them line dry and air 24 hrs...
.... ready? I don't even get bothered by skeeters! Hunted Blackwater Refuge for sika on Md's E. shore... and they were everywhere...but would dive in and back off...kinda neat... that was before T-cell came to live at my house!
Had that same "hover but don't land" experience with skeets for many years. And I'm the guy at a cookout who gets bit when nobody is being bothered...so yeah, I'm kinda a huge fan of permanone!

Really havnt stressed em, chiggies, here in the past few years and in eastern NC they can be rough. seed ticks can be a pain - turn white socks brown! I keep my trousers tucked away in my socks covered by a knee boot - seems to be a big help. Thermacell is awesome on the skeeters.
