Tips on how to safely remove a tick
  • Tweezers are the best tool to use.
  • Place tweezers as close to the skin as pollable. Try to grab the tick’s head or just above it.
  • Pull upward with a slow and steady motion. Try to avoid breaking the tick, but don’t be alarmed if the head breaks off and remains in the skin. Disease transmission is not possible without the entire body.
  • Disinfect the bite area with rubbing alcohol or soap and water.
  • Your physician may be interested in identifying the tick. Consider saving it in a baggy or pill vial. Label the container with the date the tick was removed and location of the tick bite on the body.
  • Pay attention to your health for a few weeks after being bitten by a tick. Se your doctor if you develop a rash, fever, aches, fatigue, or swollen joints.
Reduce your exposure to ticks with these tips
  • Check for ticks daily, especially under the arms, in and around the ears, inside the belly button, behind the knees, between the legs around the waist, and on the hairline and scalp. Parents should check their children thoroughly.
  • Remove, wash, and dry clothing on high heat as soon as possible after spending time outdoors. Shower as soon as possible.
  • Pull socks up over pant legs and tuck in shirts when outdoors to prevent ticks from climbing under clothing. Insect repellent or treated clothing can also be helpful in keeping ticks off the body. Please follow product instructions.
  • Create a “tick-safe” yard by mowing the lawn frequently and keeping leaves raked. Remove brush and tall grasses at the edge of the home and from areas where children play.
  • Treat dogs and cats for ticks as recommended by a veterinarian.
