Tick Removal: Blister & Straw and Knot Methods

Method of removing wood ticks, developed by Dr. Murakami, involves a subdermal injection at the bite site of a solution of Xylocaine and adrenalin. Successful in forcing the tick to retract its mouthparts and pull head out of skin, without emptying stomach contents into host (which would result in transmission of borellia bergdorferi spirochaete responsible for Lyme Disease) * Please Note: This procedure should only be done by a physician. Straw and knot method is another method used by Dr. Murakami. The success of this method lies in the subtle but constant upward pressure on the string once the tick is “caught” with the knot.
