Also please go online to find our how to kill ticks. Squashing them is not an option as they exude something which is not good for any of us; flushing them is not effective.
I pull them off and drop them into a small amount of rubbing alcohol (though vodka, gin, and tequila are also effective--wasteful, but effective).
My research also warns against removing them with bare hands as whatever poisons they exude can get onto us right then--I do bare hands, though it know I shouldn't.
