Jigger. Redbug. Mite

Categories: Viii Little Foes Of The Trailer

The tiny mite called by the natives jigger and redbug is more annoying

than the wood-tick, one reason being that there are so many more of him.

He really does penetrate the skin, and his wanderings under the surface

give one the feeling of an itching rash which covers the body. You won't

see the jigger--he is too small, but if you invade his domain you will

certainly feel him.
