…..Last weekend, I was reminded that we are deep into another summer that is full of the problems with ticks. At the end of a great summer day, I watched as my daughter checked her little ones for ticks. She keeps them away from the bushy areas, but at bath time the checking takes place.
…..I recently learned about a different way to help remove a tick. Take a cotton ball and put liquid soap on it. Cover the discovered tick with the cotton ball and rub the soap on the tick for a few seconds. Usually the tick will dislodge on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball as you take it away.
…..Hopefully you will not need to try this method but keep it in the back of your mind. Enjoy the summer!
