Default need some tips-hopefully someone has one!!!

Came home from hunting tonight full of the little black crabs( not really burrs, but not sure how to explain them ) all over my clothes

Does anyone have any good tips on how to speedily and easily remove these little guys?? i tried the lint roller, a hairbrush, and also a battery operated fuzz shaver with blades, but none really worked.

the fastest way( and its pretty DARN slow ) is rubbing them off wearing a leather glove

Hopefully there is a secret way out there and someone knows it

If there the ones I am thinking about - I use channel locks to pull them out

If your talking about the little black ones that are about 3/8 to 1/3 inch long with 2 tiny barbs on one end and they are oval shaped, then try a round comb. The kind of comb the girls used to use to "rat" their hair in the 60's. It has metal bristles on it. Run it up and down briskly. Just make sure your outside when you do it cause they fly off all over. Used to do the trick for me after hunting.

I once thought I had a cas of crabs, but I counted and there were only 23


Seriously though, I've never found anything that works that great on them. I've just learned that if I'm going to be in that kind of cover, to try to wear clothing that they won't stick to (Carhart).

If anyone does get that remover and it works, please let us know!
