If you just take them out, their claws will remain into your skin and more likely cause Borreliosis.

I hope I did not scare you too much not too little?
I am Lieven Gevaert, Bio-engineer of the University of Ghent. I have 5 children and live in the forest around Leuven.
We have lots of times be bitten by ticks and because I did not find the right information I decided to publish my experience with tick bites to prevent more people to behave irresponsible. Lime is a dangerouse disease. Ticks are there to be avoided as well as Covid. There is not vaccine against Lime so protecting your body with clothes and socks and high boots is very important. It is so nice to walk bare feet in the grass but it is a trap! You can pay this with getting Borellia.
