Ticks are relatively common to come across, particularly if you’re adventuring in a warm and humid climate. If you have a tick, you need to remove it promptly and remove all parts of its body. This credit card and key-ring sized, tick removal tool will fit easily in your wallet and features a magnifying lens and two different sized removal tools for different sized ticks.
Lyme disease (transmitted via ticks) has become an increasing problem in Europe. Although preventative measures can be taken, occasionally ticks will attach themselves to you. This tick remover card has been designed to ensure that the whole tick is removed safely.
Dimensions (packed):85 x 54 x 1mm
• Remove ticks as soon as possible.
• Do not squeeze, twist or burn a tick.
• Do not use petroleum jelly, oil or any
other chemical products to remove ticks.
• Stressing a tick greatly increases the risk
of it injecting harmful agents into the
bloodstream of its host.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
- Slip the notch of the
Tick Remover Card
under the tick. NOTE: For smaller ticks or ticks that are
not yet fully engorged, use the smaller
notch in the Tick Remover Card.
- Slowly push the
card forwards and
upwards with gentle
and even pressure.
- Allow the tick to let go
and lift away from the
skin with ease. NOTE: Do not apply excessive force
as this may stress the tick, causing
the head to remain in the skin. NOTE: Disinfect the bite area and the
Tick Remover Card after removal
using hygienic cleansing wipes.
