Tick Removal

Scotch tape has more uses than anyone can count, but here’s another one for the list.

We’ve found a reliable way to prevent tick bites. We keep a Scotch tape dispenser handy, and when we find a tick, we simply laminate it! When we get into a whole nest of ticks, we grab our handy tape dispenser before the ticks have a chance to bite, and we quickly tape them all up.

All you have to do is pick up the tick with the sticky side of the tape, and then fold the tape over itself so the tick is trapped in the middle. It’s such a clean and easy way to dispose of these pesky critters before they can even latch on to you.
