Don't Remove Ticks With Your Fingers.
In many cases a tick is likely to be carrying pathogens such as lyme disease,ehrlichiosis
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 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 cause 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 can allow disease
transmission for hours.
