And here I thought running, screaming and crying was the best way. :|

Cool. I'm actually half hoping one of the dogs gets a tick, so I can try this!

Yes but you can just see the body and it is not too gross.

I posted this video on another board, and someone said that it might not be a good idea. She said that you want to try and avoid the tick regurgitating its stomach contents while still attached...thus the usual tweezer method.

Any thoughts on that? Does spinning a tick make them nauseous? :confused:

don't use tweasers! Use the tick twister! Then, you don't have to worry about leaving any of it's body in and, if you want, you can send it away for testing (the tick must be alive for testing).

We use them in the back at work!
