    So how does that work then Mark.
    Does the Lasoo go around the ticks testicles so when you pull tight it cant stand the pain and lets go or what?

    No you would be at the wrong end there its thier head and neck I suppose but it works very well. I could not find the testicles. I expect they are quite small.

    Buy a O'Tom tick hook. Less risk of leaving the barbed mouthparts behind.

    AMYL ACETATE

    Nail varnish remover dab a tad on and they withdraw the mouth parts without regurgitating anything.

    Shown to me by my then next door neighbour vet of T.V Fame Steve Lennard works brilliantly

    Apparently they cant breath and it kills them and drops of very quickly on their own .
