Take a needle and get it Hot with a lighter, then touch the Tick with the hot needle and it will turn loose immediately. Finish sticking the Tick to kill it. Then use rubbing alcohol on the area to disinfect it. Keep an watch on the area for any possible infection, if need be seek medical attention if area doesn't get better within 24 hrs.

pull it out right away and disinfect the bite wound area. Save the tick by putting it in a bottle of alcohol and bring it with you when you see a doctor.

If it hasn't bit you yet, just take a napkin and take it off you and kill it, if it bit you, get some tweezers or pliars or something similar and grab it as close as you can to the head and pull it out.

Use tweezers and twist, do not squish, kill her after she's off.

Pull it off or hold a lit cigarette close to it and after it is removed rub with alcohol.
