>>Hi,
>>I keep my Sulcatas outside and today noticed some ticks on one individual. These ticks were not there a month ago. Anyway I removed most of them but there is one far back behind his rear leg. I can't reach in with tweezers far enough. Is there something I can rub on the tick with a Q-tip or something to get it to drop off?
>>Thanks,
>>--Jeff

if you can cover the tick in vasoline it will likely suffocate. You will have to get enough on the tick to be successful. Best of luck.
