I would be afraid that the head would not come out using this method.
The last tick bite I had I feel the head was left in and the bite got infected causing me a lot of problems.
The method we have always used is to use alcohol to get the tick to back its head out or use tweezers very close to the skin.
What happened with my last one is when I found it I just jerked it out leaving the head in.

Also Bee image to maybe mark your location on google maps - unfortunately that's the only great source around for working with.
New to permies as well, but based in Europe, so I'm considering a similar set-up for more regional connections.

Love the permies gang sign, but quite difficult to do, just tried it

Or something like that ...
Burn this (bee & trail) as a symbol in a discreet portion of your property signage, and the rest of us will know that Permaculture is done here!
Submit your own choice for symbols!

Our folk might be reclusive but they almost always have a homemade product they'd like to barter, and at the very least a sign at the road that says "Fresh Eggs" lol

Post a sign, with a hidden in plain sight "mark" that indicates "permies"? Like a hobo sign? (I actually like this one, but nobody has agreed on "the sign" yet ...)
Put up a website that shows the PC planning in so much detail that most folks' eyes glaze over, they get bored, and move on? Only permies make it through the gauntlet, and actually see the locality details?
