Ticks are parasites that feed on the blood of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians and are capable of transmitting disease.

How To Remove a Tick

Do not use petroleum jelly, matches, or alcohol!

1. Get a pair of sanitized, fine-tipped tweezers

2. Position the tweezers on either side of the tick, as close to the skin as possible

3. Grasp onto the tick and pull upwards at a steady pace

4. Do not grasp the tick hard enough to burst it - this increases chance of disease

5. Clean the bite area and your hands with soap and water or rubbing alcohol





Preventing Tick Bites

-Check your body for ticks every day. Ticks commonly latch onto: Waistbands, underarms and the back of knees

-Wear long sleeves and pants; tuck pant legs into socks for extra protection

-Use tick repellents that contain 20% or more DEET on exposed skin

-Bathe or shower as soon as possible after coming indoors to wash off or find ticks

-Avoid forested areas and tall grass

-Examine gear and pets before going inside

-Tumble clothing in a dryer on high heat to kill remaining ticks
