How to remove a tick the right way!

Forums
I recently saw a report that there are more kids brought to ER for cigarette burns trying to get the ticks off than there are for problems with a tick bite.
Two of the guys went into the woods to get a better look at an Eagles nest and came out with 17 Wood ticks and a Deer Tick, most not attached but I thought I would video this one on my Brother In Law. lol
If they have been there a while they will cement themselve to you so pry up from the back end. They will also bllla all over which is a good sign you have one in your hair if you see pepper on your fingers.

I've heard that putting Vick's Vapor Rub on them will cause them to withdraw from the skin by themselves. Never tried it myself.

Okay, thanks for the info. Show me chalking that one up to being an old wive's tale.
