Not to sound lazy, but it would be nice to include a definition for the word on requests like these...

Please use a dictionary first. Using StackExchange to answer this kind of question is a horribly inefficient way to learn a language.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is: almost a cross between a translation request and a study resources question.

Here are some tips: 1. Look up the citation form of the verb, which is ちらばる, not the polite form. 2. If you check a Japanese dictionary, look for the 自 (intransitive) or 他 (transitive) labels. 3. If you check jisho.org, it'll say "transitive verb" or "intransitive verb".
