  • The tick’s mouth parts being left behind in the skin (causing localised infection)
  • Compression of the tick’s abdomen (causing back-flow of potentially infective fluids)
  • Puncture of the tick’s body (spilling potentially infective fluids)
  • Injury and stress to the tick (causing potential regurgitation of infective fluids)
