This is one of the top tools I recommend to everyone I meet. It is never safe to remove ticks with a tweezer. This twister removes them quickly and safely, even from pets which can be difficult with their fur. I keep a set in my wallet, my car, and a few in the house. I never want to be without one if I find a tick, especially on one of my humans!
Benefits of tick twisters:
- It doesn’t leave the tick’s rostrum in the skin
- It doesn’t squeeze the tick’s abdomen
- It removes ticks of any size
- It removes ticks from animals and people
- It enables a quick and painless tick removal
How to use:
1. Choose the most suitable hook according to the size of the tick
2. Engage the hook by approaching the tick from the side until it is held.
3. Lift the hook very lightly and turn it. The tick detaches by itself after 2 or 3 rotations.
If a tick is found on a human, I highly recommend sending to Ticknology for testing:
*each tick twister order comes with two twisters (a large and a small to cover the range of tick sizes and whether or not they are engorged)
