Tick Twister

Description

Easily Remove Ticks with TICK TWISTER

People who are involved in forestry, and wildlife occupations (such as loggers, trappers,…), or who are active outdoors (campers, hikers, hunters, anglers…) are exposed to tick bites.

On humans, ticks’ favorite locations are thin skin areas (armpits, the upper thigh, the groin, behind the ears) but can also be found in other areas (e.g. arms…).   Sometimes ticks are so small (under 1/2 mm) that you can hardly see them.  But after 24 hours an itchy red spot generally develops around the area.

What’s a Tick?

Ticks are external parasites that feed on blood sucked from humans or animals.  Ticks generally live in wooded or forested areas, grass, bushes, undergrowth, meadows and clearings, but can also be found anywhere there is grass (along wildlife paths, lawns, parks…).

Ticks do not jump or fly but crawl slowly. They drop from blades of grass or twigs onto a host.

Ticks require blood to survive and reproduce.  Ticks embed themselves in their host in areas where the skin is thin (the back of the knee, the armpit, the groin) by inserting their rostrums in the skin.  They secrete substances through their saliva glands which allow them to anchor themselves solidly in order to suck blood.

Tick Twister doesn’t leave the tick’s mouthparts

The tick’s rostrum (the part that is embedded in the skin and improperly referred to as “the tick’s head”) is covered with backward-pointing spikes that allow the tick to “anchor” in the skin.  By pulling up on the tick, the spikes will rise and lock the rostrum in the skin. The tick may break leaving body parts resting in the skin and causing a painful inflammation, or an infection.

How it works – Simple

By twisting, the spikes bend into the axis of rotation, and the tick is easily removed, without traction, decreasing the risks of breaking the rostrum.
