    HELP!!! I've got a tick on my leg. How do I get it off?

    Hey guys. It's a bit late to be asking this but I've just spotted it and I don't have a remover. What's the best plan?

    if you can manage on one leg cut the other off no just kidding if just removed 3 this week all i do is get hold as far down on the tick as you can and just hold and twist this has worked for me as the head is removed by the twisting Don't just Pull it straight out and if you get it wrong its not my fault the tick tweezers are the best i must get some as my luck will run out at some time have fun.

    If you want to buy one of these O'Tom Tick Remover tools for future tick removal, you can get them off that well known auction site.

    When you remove it twist it in an anticlockwise direction!!!

    Heard it at a seminar one year by a tick expert

    I got it off with tweezers in the end. Hard little buggers though, it didn't want to give up! Luckily I don't think I squashed it at all and I'm pretty sure I got it all out. All looked fine this morning when I looked at it and I'll keep a close eye on the area for a day or two.

    I'll get a tick remover. That lymes desease looks nasty!

    I believe that only works in the Northern Hemisphere. If you get bitten South of the Equator they must be removed in a clockwise direction!
