Before going out into the wild, think about protecting yourself from ticks by wearing long-sleeved clothes and long pants. Also be aware that light clothing is more likely to attract ticks than dark clothing.

How to remove a tick

1. First, make sure it's a tick.
If it is a tick, it is more likely that it has caught on one of the hottest parts of the body, such as on the head, under the arms or at the crotch.

2. Relax, but hurry up!
Hurry, because the longer the tick hangs, the more the risk of infection increases.

Lyme disease is not transmitted immediately at the time of bite. But the risk of transmission increases with time and begins to become critical after 24 hours. The sooner you remove the tick, the less likely you are to become infected!

3. Have the right instruments
Pick up or have spare tapered tweezers or better, a tick forceps.

4. How to proceed?
Locate the tick, place the forceps at the skin's edge and catch the tick by the head. Then pull firmly and perpendicular to the skin. If tick members get stuck in the wound, remove them in the same way.

5. Wash the wound and wash your hands
Once the tick is removed, wash your hands thoroughly and disinfect the wound or wash it thoroughly with soap and water.

6. Kill the tick
So that this little beast is definitely out of harm's way, crush it or throw it in the toilet.

What not to do!
Here's what you should not do when trying to remove a tick!

1. Do not catch the tick by the abdomen!
The pressure you put on her body could cause her to inject saliva or blood under your skin, and you could then catch diseases, especially Lyme.

2. Do not twist the pliers.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States, the idea of twisting the tweezers by removing a tick is wrong. By twisting the forceps, you risk dismembering the tick and leaving some in the wound.

3. Do not try to drown, smother, burn or nail polish? 
These examples are drawn from very real experiences!

Still according to the CDC, do not try to drown the tick in any liquid, or cover it with petroleum jelly or nail polish before removing it. Of course, you should not try to burn it either.

Opt for safety and efficiency. A tweezers or a tick forceps is all you need.
