What next?

No seriously, I'd love to know what kind of pestilence shall befall us next. I woke up this morning covered head to toe in what is apparently chigger bites. So now after the snakes, ticks, roaches, ants, beetles, spiders, and now chiggers, what is next?
Here's the kicker- I am NOT a city girl gone country. I spent roughly 20 years of my life in the middle of nowhere in NY or VT out in the great outdoors. Even during our time in charleston (creepy crawly Mecca!) I did not encounter this many problems.
As a child I spent near everyday outdoors in swamps and woods and deep brush and never encountered much worse than a dozen mosquito bites.
This leaves me to ask- What the heck is wrong with Ohio? Did it's founders piss off some angry bug god who decided to bequeath the area with nastiness?

I am so frustrated!

Off to vaccuum, steam clean, and wash everything in hot water.
