I ordered Tick Twister on Amazon a few weeks ago & got to use it today. My Daughter came in with a tick on her back. At first I tried peppermint oil to get it to back out & it did not work so I used one of the tick twisters & it came right out without any pain. She is usually pretty anxious about having one pulled, but this was great. I paid $4.88 & it is well worth it.
