Step-by-step guide on how to remove a tick
1. Grasp the tick as close to the skin as possible with your ticktools.net tool and pull upwards and slightly twist with steady, even pressure.
2. Do not jerk the tick as this may leave its mouth parts embedded.
3. Do not squeeze or crush the body of the tick as it will probably vomit it's bacteria ridden gut contents into your blood stream!!! THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED TO AVOID! This is what happened to me!
4. After removing the tick, disinfect the bite site with preferrably an antiseptic wipe or clean with water, then wash your hands with soap and water.
