The words many parents fear are "Mom! I found a tick," or you find one on yourself or pet. But, the fact is ticks have never been easy to remove, and tweezers are not the simple answer they appear to be. Our solution to this problem was the invention of the ProTick Remedy. It's made of steel, with a convenient small size, and it is very thin so that you can easily place it under the feeding tick. It provides the perfect amount of leverage to remove ticks, not too little, not too much.
The journey that ended with the invention of the Protick began with a simple objective – finding an easy and convenient way to remove ticks. What followed was an extensive study of ticks and another study of tweezers. Did you know that many (not all) tweezers have a quirk that the very-tip opens as they close? Try this with your tweezer - hold it up to a light so that you can see the tip when they first close. Then, continue compressing the tweezer while watching the tip - at first, the tips close, but as you continue pressing, the end opens just a tiny bit.
Tweezers are not easy to use; we all know about pulling out a hair – grip it hard and yank. But tick removal does not work that way. Ticks are not strong like hair, and they have embedded mouth parts that can break off; they have a body section filled with fluids. And it's also a fact that each species of tick feeds differently? Some have long mouthparts like the Lone Star tick, some are short mouthparts like the American Dog tick, and they all have microscopic barbs on those mouthparts, making removal even more difficult.
So the fact is that ticks are not all the same, and making things worse, each species can pass on different diseases to the host. That's why it's essential to know the various ticks before removal.
Here is what the CDC says about tick removal – they suggest a fine-tipped tweezer, and they also suggest commercial tick removers. "If you find a tick attached to your skin, simply remove the tick as soon as possible. There are several tick removal devices on the market, but a plain set of fine-tipped tweezers works very well". The instruction then follows.
The ProTick is the perfect tweezer substitute. We hope you will consider purchasing one. You will receive the Protick tick removal tool, a bead chain, detailed tick ID instructions, and a tick ID card with your purchase. It's a very capable tick remover; it's small convenient to carry, and very easy to use. The product has a lifetime replacement guarantee. The ProTick has been making ticks unhappy since 1993.
