The Tick Twister – Quick, Safe Way To Remove Ticks
The Tick Twister is a simple and easy way to remove ticks from yourself, your kids, or your pets. This little tool is a must for all camping and outdoor activities. Give it a go.
This Tick removal tool was invented and designed by a French veterinarian in the 1990’s in two sizes, one for removing very small and small ticks and one for removing medium and large ticks. They are made of injected plastic (polyoxymethylene=POM). This polymer plastic was chosen because it is recyclable, can be incinerated without pollution (no chlorine fumes during combustion) and for its solidity and resistance to ether and most solvents.
Tick Twister can be disinfected with regular disinfectants. The smart and safe way to remove ticks from people and pets. If you live, work or play in any area where ticks live, you could be at risk for contracting diseases such as Lyme Disease. Cases of Lyme disease have been reported by nearly every state in the United States. Hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, playing outdoor sports, and gardening could bring you, your family and/or your pets in contact with ticks.
