Removing A Tick

As most Americans know, the best way to avoid vermin and parasites is good hygiene, both in one’s person and one’s habitat. Sometimes, however, through either consorting with the unhygienic or traveling through wild regions, one can still end up infested. Hence, it’s best to know the proper procedure for removing parasites such as ticks.
