How Not To Remove Ticks
Don’t Remove Ticks With Your Fingers
In many cases a tick is likely to be carrying pathogens such as Lyme Disease, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and others that are harmful to humans and pets. Tick saliva or blood is something you don’t want on your skin. Pulling on a tick, even with tweezers, can tear the mouth parts from the body of the tick and leave embedded parts in the host.
Don’t Squeeze, Crush, Twist or Squash A Tick.
This can force spirochete and other infective body fluids through the mouth parts of the tick into the host.
Don’t Apply Substances To A Tick
Applying any substances, such as petroleum jelly, fingernail polish remover, repellents, or a lighted match that upset or harm the tick almost always causes the tick to vomit the contents of its stomach back into the host.No matter how badly a tick may want to remove itself, it is not capable of doing so quickly.Ticks can live without air for long periods; attempts to smother it may allow disease transmission for hours.
