TICK REMOVAL AND CARE

What to do to remove a tick

  • Use fine-point tweezers or a special tick-removing tool. Grasp the tick as close to the skin as possible. If you don’t have tweezers, take a credit card and cut a slit in it halfway through.

  • Pull the tick straight out with steady, even pressure. 

  • Avoid squeezing the stomach of the tick, breaking it, or allowing any blood to remain on your skin.

  • Place the tick in a small plastic bag or vial with blades of grass, leaf, or moist (not wet) piece of tissue.

  • Label the bag with your name, date, site of bite and how long tick was attached.

  • Have the tick identified and tested by a lab
