Hey guys, is anybody else experiencing a horrible year for ticks? I have seen more this year than I have in the last 5 years combined. I was wondering if anybody has any experience getting ticks out of them without using tweezers? I have read of many ways to get a tick to crawl out naturally, but none of them have worked so far. What has worked for you? Thanks

I picked up my buoys from the back 40 today. I put my hand on one and immediately had six crawling on it. It's been terrible this year. They're places they shouldn't be. As far as pulling them out, just grab them with your fingers and yank them.

I use a permethrin spray one my clothes and don't have to pull ticks off me, and I'm outdoors about every day. Try it, it works.

Yep, I have been surprised this year also. I have been in country that usually would have ticks but have only found a few this year on my cloths. I do mix up a batch of cedarwood, oil and vinegar and seems to help more then I expected.

I know the professionals will tell you to be careful and not squeeze them causing them to release their goods. But I live in the real world. Usually my biggest problem is them getting away after getting them loose. When your fingers don't work so good and you can't reach areas where once was no problem. Even reaching my ankles is a chore. What I do is cover the area with vicks or vaseline before getting him loose, that way he can't run off. The bigger ticks I pull off, the deer ticks I scrape off with back of knife or credit card. Probably ain't the right way but its better than than leaving them on.

I bought something called a tick key, works like a charm for pulling them out. Used it on myself, the wife and our dogs.

I finally realize how that little tick can cause a grown man many problems.

Has anyone else ever noticed that you never see ticks on domestic cats? Been doing some work at several farms this summer and I noticed that none of the barn cats seem to have any ticks. Now that I think of it, I don't recall ever seeing any on any cat ever. Do cats pick them off or is it something about them that ticks aren't attracted to?

I know a guy that got that - he said he could still eat deer meat but beef made him really sick.

We have 'em bad in my neck-o-the-woods, Seems like more deer ticks this year than dog ticks.

Probably one of the biggest if not the biggest beef producers here in Cherokee county got that from a tick and can no longer eat red meat. Talk about suck. Ticks are more common than ever and I don't think they know what all can be transmitted by the right kind of tick. It's obvious from all the different people here on T-Man that have debilitating illness's from tick bites that the doctors don't have a handle on it. Tick bites are no joke and I wear clothing I treat about everyday.

I hope your test comes up negative Len.

I am currently on Doxycyline after testing positive for Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever a week ago.They ran blood work for every tick born disease as I had symptoms of Lyme Disease. If you are extremely tired,feel feverish,headache and dilusional go get checked. All from a tick bite back in April. Doc says the antibiotic will kill it,guess we will see if I snap out of it.
