Brainwave. Factoons. 30th May

Leeches are blood-sucking worms, whose mouths work as suction pumps to draw blood out without causing any pain to the host because of the anesthetic in their saliva. One of the easy ways to get rid of them is to put some salt on their body. The salt draws all the water from inside the leech's body leaving it dehydrated. Although, you shouldn't put salt on leeches when they are attached to your skin. It can make them vomit back into the wound which can become infected.
