>hehe nothing personnel kid
>>2074438literally not a problem
>>2074444combined with Mygga spray/rub
>>2074438>dont have ticks herefeels good to live in a developed nation
>>2074459>Queensland doesn't have tickslmao retard, it has tons, but you won't get lyme disease from them at least
>>2074459>>2074462speaking of which, this is probably the best way to get rid of them https://www.wildearth.com.au/buy/tick-tox-35ml-single/TIC-TOXthis >>2074444 looks retarded, even tweezers are better
>>2074438I found one on my chest yesterday and pulled it off. I bled for like a minute I was kinda surprised. Am I going to die anons? I'm from PA and lymes is really bad.
>>2074466>>>2074444 looks retarded, even tweezers are betteri used to use tweezers, always have them as backup.but the "noose pen" is objectily better in allmost all ways
>>2074470Both are bad because the more you agitate the tick the more it's going to burrow in and inject more toxins, supposedly squeezing them with tweezers forces the toxins out of them and into your body as wellI guess the noose might be a little better than the tweezers because you're not squeezing it but with the tick locked on there's probably a good chance of ripping it apart and the jaws or a leg getting stuck in there
>>2074438I got lyme last year. They pulled all this pus out of my knee
>>2074462That's not Queensland it's Labrador
>>2074438>DELICIOSO>IMMA DIVE IN HEAD FIRST>>2074487You're a pretty pussy boy
>>2074467As far as I know you won't get lyme's if it's removed within 24 hours. After that you can take doxycycline if you're worried about it. t.masshole
>>2074487Dude, that's messed up. Are you serious?
>>2074584Yeah it was like a small apple hanging off my knee. 1 month of strong antibiotics fixed me up, but apparently you can have lifelong symptoms if you are unlucky.
>>2074819>>2074581>doxycyclineThat's the shit I had to take. Felt awful on it, but it worked
>>2074581Don't mean to spam but IIRC you can totally get lyme from a tick before 24h. It's just by hour 24, you are practically guaranteed to have lyme if the tick was carrying it.
I've only had a tick once and I pulled it out with pliers, bite itched worse than anything in my life. fortunately the only serious consequence of getting bit by a tick in Kentucky is that you're in Kentucky.>>2074819my buddy's roommate apparently has that and claims that his joints ache too much to walk now. kinda funny desu b/c he has to have someone carry him up/down the stairs
>>2074444That looks retarded. I've used this to remove countless ticks over the past decade. Simple, light and effective.
>>2074820babe doxycycline is a nothing antibiotic. don't even. it's like saying advil makes you feel like shit.
>>2074515doesn't look like a dog to me
These are unironicaly the best thing, used them to remove hundreds from my dog over the years, works great every time.
>>2074958>>2074961Seconded, they are pretty good. Once in a while a leg breaks off, but apparently it isn't dangerous and comes out on its own.
>>2074438I wonder how the weather whammy that we had will affect ticks. First fairly warm weather, and then a good cold season and tons of snow.
This is my first spring and summer in Arkansas and people's apprehension and fear of the ticks is freaking me out. I've found one on my belly before and it wasn't a big deal and I felt it immediately... how do people not know these are imbedding themselves in their bodies?I want to respect the tick, but my urge to go hike and camp is strong.
>>2074977often they get into really weird spaces you wouldn't spot like your armpit
>>2074474the noose style pen does not squeeze the ticks body at all>>2074859>That looks retardedi would reccomend you try itone overlooked advantage is that it is also very easy to instruct non-outists in how to use it when you have a tick in place you cant reachdont buy the ones marketed to hikers, go to your dog food section, same product half the price
Ticks were invented by Satan. If you get bitten, monitor the bite the next few days. They can carry debilitating diseases. And always check your body after a trip or hike.
>>2074872I've taken a bunch of types before and dox was by far the worst. Symptoms are different for everyone, though. I vomited twice, and had lots of nausea.
>>2074829My arthritis got that bad. Fortunately, it has almost entirely disappeared. I only notice slight pain from rigorous knee exertion now.
>>2074977I had one crawl into my ear and attach as a kid. No idea how I didn't feel it, but it took me a full day to notice it.
>>2074462literally has none cuntticks are purely a New South Welshman problem
>>2074821No worries anon. I have questioned the whole 24 hour thing myself. Good to know.
>>2074819I'm glad it worked out for you. That's some heavy shit. I had no idea you can have a reaction like that. I'm pretty diligent about the lil buggers, but after seeing that I'm going to step up my game.
Just pulled this off, how fucked am I
I got two ticks on my eye lid when I was a kid. Used to love running around and playing in the high bracken. It wasn't fun having them removed.
P E R M E T H R I NERMETHRIN [spoiler]Remember to spray outside and let the clothing outside for few hours[/spoiler][spoiler]Putting pants into boots and wearing long sleeves is fine too[/spoiler]
One time my cat went out for a few days before coming back. When she came home she had 15 ticks planted on her and several loose ones
>>2074438im not white. SO this aint an issue for me. Dont go out this summer you pale pasty ass weak fucks. Stay inside, This is red man country, Non natives go.
>>2075017They release numbing shit iirc also they're just so small you'll never feel them crawling on you
just use a lighter
>>2076586Yeah then it regurgitates everything back into you and almost guarantees you get any disease it's carrying.Also fuck ticks man. I have a large property that's overgrown in the back and I mow paths through it because it's cool to walk through, but I think I'm gonna have to mow it all because my kids keep getting ticks on them when they go back there. Deer walk through a lot so it's def a breeding ground. I'm in PA so Lyme is a big concern.
>>2076465fucking a another native here and gotta agree get out of here pasty faggots
>>2074444Imagine showing up to camp/hike with the boys and carrying your anal dildo
>>2076465> doesn't know about white boi summer
>>2074438>a lyme disease vaccination was developed in the '80s but taken off the market for lack of demand>it is now only available for caninesWould you, /out/?
>>2076611please there is no need to post homos here
>>2076615I would consider it. I'd have to see what the potential side effects are and then weigh the risk of those vs lyme.
>>2076611>>2076630especially flying homos
>>2074821No, you can not. 24 hours is the point where infection starts to become possible. Your odds are still really low at 24 hours, and increase gradually. If you get it off before 48 hours you are still probably fine.https://www.cdc.gov/lyme/transmission/index.html>>2074487How? Are you retarded or black or something? What kind of disgusting freak leaves parasites on themselves for several days?>>2076615Not a fucking chance, I don't even give it to my dog. Lyme disease is virtually 100% preventable, and the vaccine has poor efficacy and needs to be taken every year.
>>2076866I'm gonna laugh my ass off when you catch it...
>>2076866>No, you can not. 24 hours is the point where infection starts to become possible. Your odds are still really low at 24 hours, and increase gradually. If you get it off before 48 hours you are still probably fine.This isn't true. It stems from a deboonked theory that the bacteria resided in the tick's gut or bloodstream and took time to get to its mouthparts while feeding. It's been known for some time that the bacteria can reside on its mouthparts, so theoretically you can be infected almost immediately.
>>2075614There are ticks on the mountains.t. grew up rural
No ticks here.
>>2079241to clarify there's no tick related diseases that affect humans in New Zealand. There's a few species of ticks here, some endemic ones, but are not a burden.
>>2079249Doesn't islam count though?
>>2074438why do we even need ticks, it'd be better if we wiped them out of existence, them and mosquitoes
>>2079230i'm literally from rural mountain queensland and no ticks cunttry again
>>2079324I literally picked ticks off me just last year. And throughout my childhood. Why the fuck would I lie?I can't speak for wherever you are but I know the area around D'aguilar and Glasshouse has ticks.
>>2079249Same in Arizona. You have to work fucking hard to get a tick in Arizona. You will get a scorpion in your tent though.
>>2074438Do you instantly get lymes if a tick touches you in the US?
>>2074438Lyme disease FSME virusI hate these fucking things so much. Ruin every enjoyment about roaming the woods.More than 30% of ticks here carry Lyme disease. Autan is only reducing the odds by that much.
>>2074459No ticks fucking things are everywhere.Especially those little fuckers that latch on to you underwear drying on the line....3 days later
>>2074438>me last year>went to some high grass area around some lake>went home, a couple of hours later found out i got a tick on my dick>panic, told my parents, my dad panics my nieces laugh, later he found out he has a tick on his balls>two of us went to the doctor the other day, he nearly burst out laughing>went back home, some gypsy came to my grandmothers asking if she can work for some money, she says not right now my grandson and son in law got ticks and went to doctor, she says i can take them out, she says they're in a problematic area (pointing to crotch), she says no problemnever going on grass again
>>2076611i was there too i peed on that sign. they're standing on my pee
>>2074459Surely this is bait. I'm not even that /out/ and I find ticks from just taking the dogs on a walk
>>2076465>>2076610seethe more darkies it's gonna be a white boy summer
>>2074438>ticksno idea what are you talking about
>>2079521What the fuck how'd those get that big
>>2074819>>2074584friend got lyme and went blind, something about ocular nerve damage.
>>2074459What about that Ross River Fever from mozzies
>>2076465Fucking naaaaaaaaaaaiii>>2079570Enjoy having to apply sunblock every day faggots I've got melanin and you don't nah nah nah nah nah(If you really don't want ticks to come near you and don't want to apply/wait for permethrin, rub tobacco all over your clothing and smoke a bit before you /out/, nicotine is anti-bug.)
>>2080351>Enjoy having to apply sunblock every day faggotsWhat's that?t. Italian
The US government let millions and millions of ticks with lymes loose in the 1950s-1960s across the east coast and they have ofc since spread across the conus and CAN. So remember to stop paying your taxes and mag dump into the post man.
>>2074438can't you just pull it out? I don't get it
>>2074444I've always found these to be pretty much worthless, after trying out every gimmick in existence I prefer the good old needlenose pliers
>>2074977I remember when I was a kid it often happened that I scratched myself really hard and hit something and didn't even notice it until much later when I saw dry blood.
>>2076611Well, what are you supposed to do during long camping nights with your bros, you fucking party killer?
>>2079656God has punished you enough with darkness, endless cold and no mountains. Having ticks on top of that would be cruel
>>2079328>sunny coastthere's your problemdarling downs is tick free, my guy
>>2080115dont have mozzies here either, no fukken water for them to breed in
>>2085315>problemI ain't complaining, they're rare and harmless anyway.
>>2085315literally the whole coast has ticks retardNever been to Frasier island or anywhere with that sandy shrubby stuff?
>>2085315https://www.northqueenslandregister.com.au/story/5748354/ticks-out-west-like-biting-professors-painstaking-parasite-map/looks like there's still ticks around the darling downs, have you ever actually been /out/ before? Or do you live like a hundred kilometres west of Toowoomba? Even then I'm sure most /out/ists in the area would go for hikes around the ridge
>>2074466>>2074444I use picrelated. I live on the southwestern coast of Finland and spend a lot of time in the archipelago as well, there are massive amounts of tics. Every summer I have to remove multiple tics off myself and my dogs. I carry those tic twisters in my autism EDC tin because I have to use them almost daily, my dogs are unironic tic magnets.
>>2085315>>2085352nvm, even further west you have ticks
Would it be possible/practical to avoid ticks by wearing long white underwear that covers you completely?I am looking for a long term solution that does not rely on chemicals.
>>2085380Ticks often latch onto you and then crawl upwards looking for a suitable spot to latch on, it's why they're often found in peoples heads. I often get them around my groin/ waistband area, I guess because they get trapped around thereI think a tick would still be able to crawl up your body with long underwear on, and it would only be practical to wear something like that in a cold environment
>>2085380if they can get on your clothes they can crawl to the gaps and to your skin. an airtight skin suit thing would be the only answer.
>>2085428But they can't bite through clothing right?When you are all wrapped up they would have to crawl all the way up to your head.The heat would be a problem though
>>2085450>But they can't bite through clothing right?Don't think so, no>When you are all wrapped up they would have to crawl all the way up to your head.With your long underwear idea they could still just sneak underneath your shirt and get under your armpit or something, unless you mean one of those old fashioned one piece underwear thingsAnd anyway>they would have to crawl all the way up to your head.Ticks are really tough and tenacious, they'd still be able to climb up to your head>The heat would be a problem thoughGiven ticks are generally an issue during the summer time it's not a feasible solutionMaybe there's some kind of hiking sock or something you could wear around your shins to stop them from grabbing on? The way they get on you is through brushing grass that they wait on, so if you had something smooth and plastic like they wouldn't be able to grab on
>>2080351I might get a little red but eventually I glow orange. I literally change color : ] both of those colors are prettier than poop.
>>2080557You know it admitted it was an orc it has melanin or w/e
>>2085353Here in America we have chewables you can give to your dog once a month that will kill any ticks that bite them.
>>2086436Yeah I'm saying as a med I don't need to wear sunblock. I'm white af in the winter and bronze in the summer. Med supremacy is real.
>>2086442If I eat them, will the ticks die?
>>2079806They slowly fill with blood like balloons if not removed
>>2079525This is very low iq.
>>2074444>someone invented a little noose for ticks
>>2079331How would the scorpion get inside the tent?
>>2076586My grandpa tried that once on a tick in my back. Don’t recommend, it dug in deeper. It sucks, use tweezers or pliers, hell I’ve used a multi-tool before
>>2079525The tick-munching gypsie strikes again anon
>>2074467don't feel too bad anon, was taking a shit this morning and looked down and saw one just above my nutsack.luckily i was able to get it off before it fully dug in, and i'm on the west coast.but i spent the next 2 hours itching like a mofo thinking there were more of them.
>>2086442>Here in America we have chewables you can give to your dog once a month that will kill any ticks that biteboth of my dogs have epilepsy. these meds decrease the seizure threshold. it kind of sucks, i can't even let my boys out to explore the acreage without worrying that one of those eight legged devils is sucking my pups life essence.
>>2074438I've always wondered, would vacuum suction cleanly remove one of these things, or would they sperg out and vomit AIDS into you?
>>2074444they breath through their butt, just cover em in vaseline, they'll pull out themselves
Just use your fingers you faggots.
This is the worst advice you can give. If you have a tick, it's important to get it out sooner rather than later. Go to your GP and get them to remove it. Buy a tick remover kit for the next time - that one on the keychain looks easy to carry.
>>2074984Got one on my glans once.
>>2076056How effective is this?Im planning to cover my pants, shoes and jacket, will it stop anything but the most lucky tick?
>>2074438Lyme disease literally does not exist.
>>2086461it would be extremely painful
>>2088541You're literally retarded
>>2088541>Lyme disease literally does not exist.So, is it another globohomo plan to stop people from leaving the cities?
Pulled this fag boy today. First time I ever had to deal with one and I was kinda scared, at least I didn't break its mouth things.The area is a bit swollen and pink now idk if I should get it checked or stop being a pussy.
>>2090819Definitely just stop being a pussy, they don't transfer disease just from touching you, they need to be attached for quite a while before there's any significant risk.
>>2074438Yesterday pulled the first one that have ever bitten me, its was pretty fucking big by what I see in pictures (not full of blood, just a bigass insect)
>>2090819>>2090828This poster is wrong. You can get Lyme immediately after the tickets latches. Go get checked. I let one go and got lyme.
I live in Wales and I have never encountered a tick camping, am I just lucky?
>>2085352i literally live 100km-ish west of Toowoombanot my problem you coastie faggots spread that shit around your abbo-infested towns lmao
>>2075614Nah man, they're in WA as well. Always end up covered in them after going to the local park
>>2074438I always set them on fire for being little fucks when I pull them off my cat. That or wrapping in toilet paper, pissing on them and flushing them down. I hate ticks with a passion
The worst are juvenile ticks. Not adults, so smaller, like 1mm long. Difficult to see on your pants.There are others that are agressive. Once I found one running up my leg, I kicked it out with a stone and once it dropped on the floor, it jumped again in 1 sec. to my leg again. Incredible.
I sat on a rock in the highlands of Scotland and noticed all these tiny spiders on my hand. Tried to scare my gf with them. She had the last laugh. Pulled 53 juvenile ticks out of me over the next few days.
>>2074459Stupid fuck. I used to live in the Goldy and had a tick in me neck from climbing a tree
>>2093487I had the same experience as a kid.
>>2074438I don't really see many ticks here in Texas and I'm always traipsing through woods and brush and whatnot. I've only found 1 on my body and that was when I was 12. Caught it trying to crawl on my neck.
>>2088539Unless you do something dumb like walking around with bare ankles or shitting in high grass/thorns you'll be fine and you can be certain that there will be none stuck to clothing
>>2093058Based I do the fire thing when they fuck with my dog every time. Fucking pieces of shit
>>2085380I dont see a problem
>>2093058I did it once from the front side to prevent it from biting ever again but it started sizzling and it let this horrible smell. I just drown them now. I thought about pulling their mouth things and letting them free again to starve.
>>2094931They can still reproduce without a mouth, burning or dissolving them is the best solution
>>2091691Dude I have a bush block in that area and there are LOADS of ticks.
>>2094899this is revolutionary.if only it worked for mosquitos. i've been bitten through clothes before.
>>2094981If its stingproof it should be mosquito proof
>>2074438IIiiiiiyaaaaaaa don't come inside!
Is dusting wettable sulfur acting good for keeping the tick menace off?I've used it for years since my time in the Boy Scouts, but I'm wondering if there is a better trick than tucking my pants into my shin high socks and beating the sulfur sock on my legs and shoes before going out.
>>2074819Most of the lifelong symptoms are bullshit made up by drama queens. Its like the new fybromyalgia.
>>2097726I don't think so. I have heard many horror stories in my state
>>2097726haha agreed, one of my neighbours had fibromyalgia and has moved on to calling it myalgic encephalomyelitis or ME for short. how much more narcissistic can you get than naming your disorder after yourself
Those seed ticks are the worst, their so small and hard to see. I found one on my dick once, had the whole thing in its mouth..
>>2085469>Maybe there's some kind of hiking sock or something you could wear around your shins to stop them from grabbing onSounds like a hole in the market for a great product like this

>>2078824Any literature to support this? I work for the NPS and in our annual 'tick talk' the official line is 36 hours. Those guys don't fuck around with health and safety is the thing.
>>2100527You are part of the problem! Ok so put a lyme disease tick on you for 1 minute.
>>2100682what the fuck? he's trying to help. if there is any data that supports lyme disease on tick mouthparts then he's offering to help disseminate that information. you can't just stand up in front of people and say "I read this post on 4chan last week that said ticks carry lyme disease in their mouth"
where can I escape them?

>>2091299You must not spend any time at all outside if you get yourself checked for each tick you find.>>2090819Monitor for symptoms. See a doctor if you feel unwell for more than a few days, or you develop new or increased swelling at the site. Whenever I find ticks I draw an arrow in sharpie where I pulled it out so I can watch it.
>>2100738Kayak instead of walk. There's no ticks on the river.
>>2100682>>2100527Here's an article critical of the 36 hour claim:>minimum tick attachment time for transmission of LB in humans has never been established...The definitive experimental data indicate transmission of LD spirochetes in <16 hours and frequently in <24 hoursBut studies supporting the 36 hour theory are pretty solid overall.According to "Conquering Lyme Disease" by Fallon, Sotsky et al., 2018,>It usually takes thirty-six hours of attachment for the tick to infect a human. If a tick is attached for a shorter period of time, the Borreliaspirochete can still be transmitted, but the likelihood of transmission is much lower.So you can choose how paranoid you want to be, but if you decide not to freak out if you pull off a tick within 36, that's totally reasonable. The CDC's final word:>In most cases, the tick must be attached for 36 to 48 hours or more before the Lyme disease bacterium can be transmitted.
>>2101636Oops, here's the link for the critical articlehttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4278789/
>>2101637In one experiment,>However, one of the 14 (7%) test rodents was infected in <24 hours, five of the 14 (33%) in <48 hours, and 13 of the 14 (93%) in <72 hoursAnd another trial found>one of 14 (7%) mice infected in <36 hours, three of 12 (25%) infected within 36 hours, and six of eight (75%) infected within 48 hours.
