Treatment is most successful if started immediately after identifying a tick bite.
 
This tick remover firmly grips the tick or a nymph minimising damage and reducing the risk of leaving claws or pincers in the bite area.

  • Specially developed tweezers (for nymphs as well)
  • Minimum risk of damaging the tick
  • For use with all tick sizes
  • Includes a clear set of instructions.
  • Includes two alcohol wipes for disinfecting the bite area once the tick has been removed

Tick Remover Instructions
1. Hold the tick remover between your thumb and middle finger and press the back of the tool with your index finger: the gripping head will now open.
2. Place the gripping head carefully around the tick as close as possible to the skin and then close the gripping head.
3.  Rotate the clamped tick slightly to the left and slightly to the right until it is partially released. With a few gentle tugs, pull the tick out in a motion perpendicular to the skin. Disinfect the bite area and note down the date of the bite in your diary.
4. Use the Care Plus® Tick-Test to test the tick for the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium.
 
Warning! Never anaesthetize the tick with alcohol or any other anaesthetizing substances and never heat the tick, not even with a cigarette.
