I found a tick attached to the back of my calf. I removed him perfectly intact using this method. It released almost immediately after I lifted it, though.
Also, should I watch out for anything or what? Any symptoms to worry about? I assume he attached today and was there for only a few hours. I'm not too worried, but I still hate stuff like this.
And while we're at it, does anybody have any suggestions for a paleo-friendly tick prevention solution? I definitely don't want to spray random chemicals on my clothes or something, but I also don't want to have to deal with this shit.
Dr. Bronner's Peppermint soap is a good tick deterrent. We figured this out after the fact, when backcountry camping in Southern Illinois. The ticks were all over me, not a one on my husband. He was using it, I was using something else. Later read online it was a good tick deterrent and some other experienced campers agreed. You can dilute it a lot with water and spray it on your shoes/gear too.
