REMOVE THE TICKS USING ONLY SALT

REMOVE THE TICKS USING ONLY SALT
We all know variety of tricks to get rid of ticks. Some people smear the area with oil, rub some soap and some people remove the tick with tweezers. Someone advises to grease the place with acetone, which by the way, you shouldn’t do.

Instead of that, we suggest you to try this popular method for removing ticks that was told by one old country school teacher.

“The place where the tick is attached needs to be salted with fine salt and put a piece of soaked cotton.”

In this way, the tick will come out by itself for about 20 minutes.

Don’t throw it away. Be sure to put it in a box and take it to a laboratory to determine whether it is a carrier of a contagious disease, because one of ten ticks is proved to be a carrier of encephalitis.

If you don’t have remedy against ticks or mosquitoes before going out in nature, don’t worry, you can prepare it yourself:

“In 200ml boiling water put 25 grams of carnation, and leave it to simmer about 15 minutes. Let it cool down and then add 2 tablespoons of alcohol.”

Rub this mixture before leaving your home, or moisten your pet. The writer argues that with this remedy she or her dog didn’t get any ticks for 10 years after returning from walking in the forest.

If you do not have enough time to prepare this remedy, you can use Carnation oil diluted with water, a few drops per liter of water: also mosquitoes don’t like the smell of carnation.

If you are afraid to get rid the ticks by yourself, it is best to seek medical help.
