Summer is just around the corner and along with the great weather, beaches and sunny days, there is also a dark side: bugs.  One of the worst bugs you can come in contact with is ticks.  Use this Helpful Hint to properly remove ticks from you and your pets.

  • Sanitize a good pair of tweezers
  • carefully flip tick on back
  • grasp firmly with tweezers and as close to skin as possible
  • apply gentle pulling until tick comes free
  • rinse down sink or flush down toilet
  • sanitize area of skin that was affected
