Well, among all the daffodils, Lilly, and lady bugs, the ticks are starting to be seen here in S.W. Missouri. My 3 yr old daughter had one attach itself to her during a short walk. Luckily, I saw it in time and was able to pull it out befor it got too embedded. However, I know there will be more every once in a while, and we may not catch them so soon. The problem, the only way I was taught to get rid of a well embedded tick, was with a lighted match. I can't do that to my li'l gal. Does anyone have any tips/suggestions for tick removal?
