Here is the reason: the bacteria that causes Lyme Disease (and the other tick borne diseases Ehrlichiosis and Anaplasmosis) lives in the salivary glands of the tick. If you try to suffocate the tick by using petroleum jelly or try to burn or squish it, the stress of such actions will cause the tick to regurgitate (they literally “throw up”) the infected saliva into the blood stream, which increases the risk of contracting a tick born disease.
