If you are ever bitten by a tick, do not use a match to make it release. Take a tweezer and very slowly pull the tick straight up until the skin tents and the tick releases.

If you can take the tick to the doctor to find out if it is a deer tick, and they find out it is, you may get Lyme disease.

Make sure you wear long pants with socks and shoes when walking in very wooded areas.
