Now that it's October and a bit cooler, we've been working in the yard getting stuff done that we put off over the long, hot summer.
And sure enough, Mr. Man was working hard out there, kneeling in the dirt, and later that evening found a baby tick on his knee. <aarrgghh!!>
Personally, I never got a tick bite until we moved to Oklahoma. And I got it in my very own back yard! (It's not like I was out hiking somewhere remote and hadn't taken precautions!)
<eewwww!!!> I cannot tell you how much I hate parasites!!!
We knew enough to ensure that you remove all of the tick, especially the embedded head. And over the years and subsequent bites, we tried all the various methods that you hear about.
None of them worked well until we purchased this little gadget:
the Tick Twister. It makes it so simple and easy!
We found it at our vet, but it's on Amazon and lots of other places.
Here's a link to it on Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/z9s28yp
It's only $5.49. Nice and cheap.
If you ever get ticks, you will want this.
If you don't ever get ticks, you are most blessed. :)
So, why does all this talk of ticks make me itch all over?? LOL!
Okay. Just passing it along. It's what I do.
