[Your Mother]: There is a nice looking—don’t know first hand—new tool being market for removing ticks.
[Your Mother]: (marketed)
[Lotus1]: at least ticks don't fly
[1nickt]: We have a new tick in cenral New Jersey this year. The Lone Star tick -- no Lyme, but will give you an allergy to red meat!
[Your Mother]: "Tick Twister."
[1nickt]: My sister lives in the Sydney suburbs (carved out of the bush) and they have the Paralysis tick -- leavs you quadriplegic!
[perldigious]: Hmm, thanks Lotus1... perldigious scribbles note to buy lots of opossums as "pets" in the future to hang around outside his property. :-P
[1nickt]: You must twist and pull! If you burn, use tea tree oil etc, the tick barfs (inside your blood vessel) and you get all the loevely bacteria in his gut transferred to yours.
[1nickt]: tweesers work just fine
