By what Shereen described she did not decapitate it she just took the body off. She has to pull the head out or it will not die , it will just grow another body.I've also heard that nail polish will sufficate it. Hopefully, after decapitation it may 'let go'. I would recommend clear if you decide to go that route. I would try alcohol first though. Much cleaner.
Taking the body off the head or the head off the body is the definition of decapitation... or did I miss something?By what Shereen described she did not decapitate it she just took the body off. She has to pull the head out or it will not die , it will just grow another body.
I did the same when I encountered my first tick, I thought it was a mole because my rottie had a mole around her eye. I saw legs moving and I freaked out !!! I used pliers to get it out hahahaHEHE!
I squished one on moose once thought I ripped it's body off but it just got so flat lol, it's head was still in there had to dig it out that was no fun...
I was going to suggest the hot needle, works every time! my aunt lives in the country and places the ticks in a can of gasoline to kill them after removing since they are hard to kill.I use a lighter and a needle. Heat up the end of the needle and put right against the head and you will see it back right off and release from the skin. The heat has never hurt the dogs and I recently had to remove approx 10-12 from the two rescue poodles that I groomed a few months back. Worked like a charm.
Good other methods also. I didnt know alcohol did the trick too.
