Camping is loved by many. However, in most Russian regions, attacks on it are fraught with the risk of tick-borne encephalitis. The main problem with ticks is their absolute invisibility. We do not feel how they bite us, so the risk of infection with various infections is high.

If you find yourself in nature, have found a sucking tick, and there are no tweezers for its removal, here's a hiking life hack that everyone should know.

Blade make a wedge-shaped notch on one side. Bend the resulting tool slightly to give it a spoon shape.

Place the wedge-shaped notch as close as possible to the tick's head and begin to carefully unscrew it.

After several circular motions, the tick will be removed. Be sure to take it to the laboratory for analysis, and treat the bite with an antiseptic.
