The Harvest Mite Life Cycle

Emperor reacts badly to the bite of the "chigger," or harvest mite. Perhaps you've seen them. They are very small little red dots, almost microscopic. A trip to the doctor to find out why he was itching so badly was the inspiration for this little production, written by Emperor. Elf narrated and did most of the artwork.

  1. Oh my goodness! When do you all find the time to do such creative things? Chigger bits are no fun.

  2. "Patrick" was paid $5 for an afternoon of babysitting. Well, actually, he earned some Pokemon cards worth $5. Art costs, you know.

  3. I love the final grin! Bouncer feels the same about the Japanese dust mite, which gives him eczema.

  4. Well done on your production boys! I don't think we get those bugs here. We are lucky I reckon!

  5. Oh, the wonder of seeing living minds in action! Can you imagine how many subjects they covered: community helpers, nature study, health, language arts, technology!

    Your boys are simply inspiring . . . when they are not creating a ruckus at boring Sunday school classes! LOL!

  6. Sue, I'm going to have to look up "Japanese dust mites" because I thought all dust mites were the same! Different silverfish AND mites... wow.

    Chris, I'm going to guess you have some other icky bug we don't here. Otherwise I'll get jealous. :]

    Aww, Tammy, thanks! Inspiring, huh? I logged these down as "science" hours, though I guess "health" or "communication arts" might have worked, too.

  7. That is weird. No videos will show for me on my computer. Even the ones on my blog. I just hope others can see them

  9. So that's what got me a couple of years. I saw a bunch of those red dot insects when I taking down the old playhouse. Then a rash broke out all of my body for several days.
