A safe and easy way to remove ticks. Each pack includes 2 tools with easy grip handles - a large hook for for medium and large ticks, and a small hook for small ticks.
• It removes the tick without squeezing it, reducing the risk of infection
• It doesn't leave the mouthparts of the tick in the skin
Twist counterclockwise. Never pull up on a tick using tweezers as the spikes will rise and lock the rostrum (tick’s mouthparts) in the skin. The tick may break leaving body parts resting in the skin and causing a painful inflammation or an infection. By twisting, the spikes bend into the axis of rotation, and the tick is easily removed, without traction, decreasing the risks of breaking the rostrum. When removing a tick it’s essential not to compress it, reducing the risk of saliva back-flow. A tick’s saliva contains irritating substances and sometimes microorganisms that can lead to infections and/or allergies.
Tick Twister works wonderful. I’m usually squeamish about these things and it gave me the confidence to do it and was so easy.
