What would a Buddhist [monk] do, if he found a tick tightly hlding on to his skin? Leave it till it falls off?
Ticks can cause Borreliosis or Lyme disease as well as meningitis, and need to get removed as quickly as possible.
Not always can you save the tick, I've never been able to, and honestly, what for? To multiply?
This is not another fleas thread, mind you.
Ticks are a lot more dangerous than fleas, .... well, since we don't get the plague anymore.... plus you have one for several days, and can get a hold of it.
Or what's up with intestinal worms?
