    Ticks ( News report on Breakfast News )

    I watched a report on Ticks this morning BBC Breakfast News ! There is an increase in ticks in the UK and are worning people about Lyme disease, the Park ranger from dartmoor seems to think its ok to use EYEBROW pluckers on ticks ??? I believe that if you squeeze the body of a tick it regurgetates the contents of its stomach and thats how people get the infection ( Lyme disease ) . He did mention tick plyers but that was at the end of the slot... Am i right about the squeezeing of the body ???

    I had one in my side when i returned home from a fishing trip once, horrible things, luckily i managed to remove it safely before it burrowed in properly. Everytime i return home from fishing/hunting or just being out in the field i check myself over just to make sure theres no more.

    Was sitting on the throne contemplating the infinite (as you do) and spotted one on the inside of my knee - that was despite all sensible precautions - they are determined little sods.

    100% right to remove them get a Tic twister called O Tom Tick Hooks from Bush Ware. www.bushware.co.uk Tel 0845 226 0469. Also if you pull the body you will possibly leave the head behind embedded in the skin this usually results in an abcess.
