    A concerted yellow jacket attack can put anyone in the ground, not to be dug up as treasure ever. Now is the worst time of year for them.

    Holy **** smallfoot you got lite up. I got hit in the left and I swear I was the only town I realize that they go on the ground to. The question is did you keep digging or did you call of the day? LOL

    Toddspoint beat me to it,redbugs it is!Itch like who flung the chunk,fastest way to kill them and stop the itch is good old chlorine bleach,diluted a bit and applied liberally to the area where the redbugs are.

    You mat want to read up on jewel weed.
    Just crush it up, rub the heck out of the bite/sting and it takes the reaction down to a level of tolerance or just takes the reaction completely away.
    Been using it for years, as a bite can be a week of itching, swelling, oozing.

    Truth,

    Poison Ivy is my kryptonite, I think I only have to look at it and I breakout. It didn?t used to be that way and I only be became allergic to it since moving to Ohio last year. Spent 24+ years in the military and half of that was out in the field, add in my younger years where I fished, hunted, and camped out in the woods all the time and never once was I affected. I have broken out over 6 times in the past year and it sucks. Good luck with your hunts. Walt

    First and foremost WE thank you very much for your unselfish service protecting the honor of the greatest country of this side of heaven.

    As far as the poison ivy goes I get it but it?s not a big deal I probably couldn?t point it out if it was in front of me. But I bet it sucks when you get it and it bad. I would hate to have it all over I can tell you that much. That must suck so bad lol
