The tick key helps you get the tick off all proper like. I have never had one actually attach to me, but have had so many on my body I have lost count. I have pulled a few off the dogs and asssisted a freaked out Theresa. I am surprised she does not hose me off in the front lawn after a bike ride. Thanks Bunz. I use just tweezers, but I think I am gonna pick some of these up and throw them in the bike bag. Seems cabellas carries them.
