leeches n tics 17-Jan-2005 At 12:17:34 PM Alex
Also to remove tics, is the standard method to place tweezers behind the head and twist anti-clockwise?

Don't do that! You'll leave the head/mouthparts of the tick imbedded which can cuase infection or worse. What you should be doing is trying to grasp the tick with tweezers as close as possible to the skin, prefeably on the mouthparts and then gently pull out. Dont tug or yank as you'll just rip it apart leaving bits embedded. If bits are left behind you'll have to remove them with a sterilized needle or something similiar.
