How Barnes Wildlife Control Tick Removal Service Suggests You Remove Ticks
If you find a tick attached to your skin, please don't panic! Simply remove the tick as soon as possible. There are several tick removal devices on the market and we suggested one above. But, a set of fine-tipped tweezers work very well in removing a tick. Just follow the steps below.
- Take the fine-tipped tweezers and grasp the tick as close to the skin’s surface as you can.
- Next, pull upward with steady, even pressure. But, don’t twist or jerk the tick. Doing so may cause the mouth-parts to break off and remain in the skin. If this occurs the remove the mouth and other parts with the tweezers. If you can't remove the mouth easily with washed tweezers, leave it and let the skin heal.
- After removing the tick, clean the bite area and your hands with rubbing alcohol.
- Please, never crush a tick with your fingers. Dispose of a live tick by putting it in alcohol, placing it in a sealed bag/container, wrapping it tightly in tape, or flushing it down the toilet.
- As an option you may want to keep the tick for several weeks in case you develop some symptoms suggestive of a tick-borne disease.
