Removing an engorged tick
- Remove a tick as soon as you realize it is on you.
- Aggravating a tick by squeezing, burning or putting any substance on it can cause the tick to back out.
- Aggravating an engorged tick may cause it to inject its toxic saliva into you increasing the risk of a tick-borne disease in humans and pets.
- When the tick is agitated it will attach itself with greater determination.

My name is Francene Lee Taylor. I am an Australian, who spent much of my life overseas. Seventeen years ago I returned to the beautiful Byron Shire on the far north coast of NSW, to enjoy the clean, safe and wholesome lifestyle that the Byron Bay region has to offer. I settled in Wilsons Creek in the Byron Bay hinterland, created organic gardens and roamed free and fearless in the hills. For a time life was idyllic but this was not to continue!
