What is the best way to get him off?
 
I have tried hot knives and dousing with rubbing alcohol before, and it hasn't worked well. Should I just pull? I've heard that that causes the head to stay stuck and is not a good idea.
 
Advice appreciated.

Yeah, I got it out. The little jerk wouldn't let go, and when he finally came out after much pulling with tweezers, one could see a plug of my skin attached to his mouth-parts. Nasty. After this, I flushed him down the toilet, then thoroughly cleaned the bite with soap and warm water, and doused it with iodine. Good as new.

Modesty while mowing demands the wearing of a t-shirt ;-)

LOL! Of course it does. At the least.
 
I will have you all know that I was certainly not mowing shirtless, or even with one of those grossly unpresentable "T-shirt" things. I was, as a matter of fact, wearing a rather formal dress shirt.
 
I'm thinking the little bugger got onto my neck when I swiped some tree branches, and then either fell or crawled down to stomach-level.

Praise be to God that you were so moved in His service to wear such modest attire.

Eric you do not go far enough.
I wear a tux whilst mowing the lawn.
And also the required 2 king browns at either end of the yard is a must for any modest mowing man.
