    This video is full of horrible advice! Never use tweezers to remove a tick.
    You will leave the head imbedded in your skin. THAT is how you end up
    getting lime disease from an infected tick. NEVER twist. Again, you will
    leave the head behind. You have to make the tick pull it’s head out on its
    own. Fire works best. a match that has just been put out has worked for me.
    Also, a lighter that has been heated up a little. There are other ways,
    alcohol will work, I have also used fingernail polish remover. You are more
    likely to find a tick in your crotch than in your armpits or hair. Your
    crotch is a lot closer to the ground than those other places.
    The other thing is DEET is horrible stuff. It has been known to kill
    infants. Do you want to put that stuff on your skin? There are plenty of
    other insect repellents out there that work just as well without DEET.
    Sheesh, city folk. (head shake)

    This may sound somewhat painful,but it works,if you catch the tick as it’s
    started to enter.Hold a cigarette just close enough where you feel the
    heat.The tick will start to back out just far enough to remove it with
    tweezers.Works for me.

    I read that dichotomous earth dust is excellent for ticks and fleas. So we
    put it to the test. We found a tick on our dog, kicking and wiggling. I put
    this tick in the dust, within minutes it was dead. So we dusted our dogs
    with the D.E. before we went outside again. Hours later we did find ticks
    but they were DEAD.
    NEVER have we found them dead no matter what product we used.
    We dusted our couch, our carpet our cars with this D.E.

    Never twist! Ever! That can cause the the mouth piece of a tick to be left
    in the skin.

    use like vitamin E skin oil as a base & add eucalyptus oil to it. Ticks
    don’t like eucalyptus. also add to it lemon grass oil, cuz skeeters don’t
    like that. works great! tested it for skeeters in garden a couple of
    nights ago when they were biting me before I used the mixture. Also, last
    year I went hiking two weekends in a row to same place. Found like 15
    ticks on each of us first weekend. Next weekend we hiked same areas & used
    oil mixture & found only 1 tick.

  14. Tube Oswald says:

    well….the best way to remove a tick is just cut off the whole area where
    the tick bites. For example: if a tick bites into your arm, remove the
    whole arm.
