      Thank you for the tip.  The ticks are out in force already this year.  I can't step into the woods without getting a few on my clothes and I've already been bitten several times. I'm going to try this the next time it happens.

      I used this method on my dog once and it worked like a charm - the disgusting tick pulled right out!  No fuss, no muss - my dog didn't even squirm.

    I wish I would have known about this solution when I discovered a tick while taking a shower.  My wife took a tweezers and pulled it of from the left side of my chest.  Believe me I saw stars because it hurt so much.

    Thanks for sharing the info.

    Kindest regards,

    Good thing to pass along.  Thanks. 

    I wish I'd known that simple approach when I spotted a tick fastened to the inside of my (then) two-year-old daughter's ear as her father carried her through the shopping center.  What an "event" that was that night.  hmm

    That's interesting, I'll have to try that method. The last one I had, I just yanked out with a peace of tissue, which I'm not sure was the best idea
