Warm Winter = Lots of Ticks!!
With the warm winter, also comes an abundance of ticks this year. Check yourself often!
What is the best way to remove a tick?
The best way is to remove it AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE – ideally before it has attached or as soon after it has attached as possible. In general you want to grasp the tick as close to the site of attachment with tweezers and pull straight back. If the tick has been attached for any period of time, and if you are not familiar with tick removal, you likely will need to use more force/steady pressure than you might have guessed.
