Proper Tick Removal

•   Do not squish, burn, or twist ticks while attached.

•   Use tweezers to gasp the head of the tick as close to the skin as possible and pull straight out.

•   Use gloves or a tissue or if needed your fingers to remove tick.

•   Wash hands and bite site with soap and water after tick removal.

A localized reaction or affection can occur where tick was attached. If redness or pain develops at the bite site, consult your doctor.
