TICK RE­MOVAL TIPS

Boating - - FIND MORE BOATINGLAB -

• Don’t cover a tick with petroleum jelly to make it come off. You’ll just have a greasy tick.

• Don’t ap­ply the hot head of a just-blown-out wooden match to the tick’s der­riere. You’ll just burn your­self.

• Pull out a tick with sharp-pointed tweez­ers, pulling straight up. Don’t twist to avoid break­ing off the head. — Kevin Falvey
