Weird thing to ask, I know. What is the best way to go about removing a tick in a difficult spot? I had one in the middle of my back. I can see it in a mirror and it is indeed a tick, but no way I could manipulate tweezers to get it! I know the best method is to get tweezers, grab it as close to the mouthparts as possible without squeezing the body, and gently tug until it is removed with mouthparts intact. BUT, that only helps if you are doing it for someone else, or it isn't in a difficult place. I live alone, and just moved to this area so I don't really know anyone yet. Short of letting my chickens peck it off I am stuck between a rock and a hard place, I think!
