Maybe you don't have to worry about ticks. In the southern US it's something we have to continually address. The Pro-Tick Remedy is the best removal method I've run across. It is a simple, effective method to pry the entire tick loose from your skin. I know it's a single use tool but it is really lightweight. Without the magnifying glass and key chain the Pro-Tick tool doesn't even register 1g on my scale.
It's available at REI and other outfitters.
This is a slick tool. But the more important message is that when you're in tick habitat, protect yourself. Apply DEET. Use permethrin. Check yourself often. Remove ticks on first sight. Don't become a statistic.
