Ticks are a very serious species of pests that need to be exterminated as soon as they’re found. In Georgia specifically, there are three main types of ticks that you can encounter.
Those ticks are:
• Lone Star Tick
• American Dog Tick
• Black-Legged Tick
If you find yourself, a family member, or a pet with a tick, here’s how you properly remove it:
1. Use a pair of tweezers and grab the tick as close to the skin as possible.
2. Pull the tick straight up. It is important to not wiggle it around, as the mouth could still stay lodged in the skin.
3. Once the tick is removed, clean the bite area thoroughly with soap and water.
Please note: never kill a tick with your bare fingers.
