Wolfhound person BS: deer in your garden try this (28) RE: BS: deer in your garden try this 26 Aug 12

English deer ticks can be removed with an ordinary pair of tweezers, but be careful to get the whole thing - the head is small and its important to get the jaws out intact. Dabbing them with meths or paraffin first is supposed to help, but I find it works fine dry, on me or my dogs. Then I put TCP on the wound to dry it out and kill anything.

The tick must be very firmly crushed - the head end particularly.

The worst I've had from this is a small infected itchy lump for a few days, and my remedy for that is to drain off any pus and apply more TCP.

We have roe deer in the area, but I've not seen any in the garden.
