I have heard of Deer ticks and dog ticks, but never sea ticks.  Deer ticks on the ones that carry lyme disease.  You don't want that.  If one borroughs into your skin you can light a match, blow it out, and while it's still hot touch it to the ticks body.  The heat will usually make them back out.  Don't grab the body with tweezers.  You can rip the body of the head and the head can stay lodged in your skin.

Put Vaseline over them it'll make them back out ive heard, never heard of those kind of ticks though. Deer ticks are small and black i think but dont quote me on that, i never get deer ticks i always get the larger brownish red ones i hate ticks man and since i have long hair its hard for me to find them. I get my wife to check my head after i hunt in the woods, like sum kinda monkey:lol:

Yeah the Vaseline method also works.  As does cooking oil, baby oil, or even motor oil.  I think it makes it so they can't breathe.

sounds like deer ticks, which can carry lyme disease. make sure you get them all out completely either way

Those methods actually are not recommended by doctors. If you irritate the tick (ie: suffocating it), it tends to regurgitate it's stomach contents back into it's host. It also just so happens that the diseases that ticks carry live in their stomach. Bad idea.

The recommended method of removing ticks is to use some fine-tipped tweezers  to grab the tick by the head and just pull it out slowly. Make sure you grab it by the head though, that's important.


Edit: just finished reading the entire thing.. weiliiii: most of the ticks people get in the woods are deer ticks. There are a lot of regional variations. The older they get the darker they get, so that's probably why they're black. Younger ones are a reddish color which fades to brown then dark brown with age. Also, have you noticed at lot more ticks this year in GA? I went to one of my regular hiking/hunting spots in May and hiked around for 3 hours... I came out with nine ticks! 3 were embedded. Most of them were young ticks that were about 2-4mm across. Hard as hell to find.

Oh, as far as the Lyme's disease goes, you can always tell if you've been bitten by a tick infected with Lymes if there is this bright red bullseye pattern radiating out from the bite wound. If you catch it in it's first stage you can treat it somewhat easily (with oral antibiotics).

Yeah didn't know about the regurgitate thing.  Doesn't sound good.  You usually can't get to the ticks head if it is buried under your skin.

I sometimes you have to grab a little skin with it. It hurts, but you gotta do it if you wanna be safe.

I sat down on a hill and had the fuckers crawling all over me, it was sick.

I was going mad trying to brush them off, when I got home I found 2 in my leg and 1 right on my fucking nut sack, no shit!

I read online a good method which is to make a small loop out of cotton.  Put that over the tick and tighten.  Then gently tug until the tick releases.  It takes a minute or so of tugging but they did all eventually release.  Evil little bastards.

why don't you just let them drink your blood and be done with it? they've already bitten you so if you've got a disease then you've got a disease.

Trying to tweeze off little insects is fucking creepy and sometimes painful
