    Wal Mart has Sawyers permethrin tick spray on their web site for $3.66 a 9oz. can. If anybody's interested. I bought 12 cans, no shipping if you buy enough.

    Buy the concentrated Permethrin for about $10 . You can make gallons of it for the money.

    If you are unfortunate and still find an attached tick, try Shooters Choice MC #7 Bore Cleaner. A small amount on a patch rubbed on the pest and they release and die.

    Ive always heard that anything you put on them to back them out is dangerous, as it causes them to 'puke' their stomach contents out into you.

    ^^^ i heard this too, or some facsimile thereof. besides,, who wants to pay to go to a doctor, to get a tick removed, least it got in your ear or something..

    usually i can feel the difference between a tick, or an ant. ticks crawl different. ever so often a tick gets by. like a deer tick or a seed tick.
    when i pluck em out, i either feel a thump, or hear one. maybe a snap.
    when ya scrape them, is it any different?
