As a rule, they dig into thin skin and they are easy to get, but there are unusual situations and the tick engages in rough skin, then you will have to tinker with it a little.
The tick can be removed in the following ways:
- With the use of fatty substances: Cream, vegetable oil or petrolatum, we cover them with a tick and place around the insect. This layer of fatty substance will create a shell without air and the mite will weaken the grip, after 1-2 minutes take it with two fingers, tilt it to the side of the back and pull it out. If you see that the mite climbs, do not pull it, spread it again and leave it for 10-15 minutes, then try again to pull it out.

- There are cases when the mite breaks off and leaves the proboscis or does not want to wiggle, well, act like a thorn, take a needle, treat it with a spirit and extract it.
- The second method is more effective. It can be dvuhpaltsami, can be folded thread hook mite over the trunk and scroll it counterclockwise. Sometimes 7-10 turns are enough, sometimes a couple of minutes and mites fall off, while they sometimes die, sometimes they remain alive.
