Can tick-removal tools top tweezers?

Not many ticks on Wall Street but there are beaucoup where the Wall streeters live on Long Island. Whichever contraption you use to remove them (KPA recommends tweezers with gentle, steady vertical traction followed by cleaning with alcohol), prevention is better. DEET or botanicals, long pants and floppy hats usually prevent bites but be sure to check your child after playing in woods or fields. And don’t forget the sunscreen!
