Thread: How do I get rid of a tick too small for tweezers?

  1. #1

    How do I get rid of a tick too small for tweezers?

    It's also too small for a tick puller...

    Any suggestions? I don't fancy waiting for it to fatten up!

    Cheers,
    Mat

    Or do I need a better tick puller?

    I cringe every time someone mentions tweezers and ticks in the same sentence. Get yourserlf some of these, works every time. There`s two sizes for big and little ticks.



    I keep these at home, in the car and at work. Tick removal gear should be as important as your rifle.

    Put a drop of oil on it. Enough to cover it. It will release itself as it "breathes" through its "tail".

    Don't EVER put anything on a tick as they will regurgitate what they have in their stomachs back into you(assuming it is on you)and,you may be in VERY big trouble.My brother-in-laws young grandson has just been diagnosed with Lymes disease,and,it seems to be getting more and more prevelent.Use the tick remover that Basil has put up,they work first time every time and never leave a head behind................'M'
