How do I kill a tick?

Destroy the Tick

After you have removed a tick from your kitty (or you!), be certain to destroy the tick. You can drop it into rubbing alcohol, or grind it into the ground so that there is more 'fluid' than recognizable insect remaining. Ticks can survive water, so flushing them down the toilet or running them down the drain of the sink won't kill them.
