TICK TWISTER – TICK REMOVER
A safe method of tick removal is by the use of a TICK TWISTER
. Two hooks come in the package.
A large hook for the medium and large ticks
& a small hook for small and very small ticks.
- Select the correct sized tool according to the size of the tick – the large hook for medium and large ticks or the small hook for small and very small ticks.
- Hold the handle between your thumb and index finger and slide the fork end of the tool toward the tick until it is caught between the prongs.
- Lift the tool very lightly and rotate in either direction several (2-3) turns. You will feel when the tick has released its mouth-parts and it is safe to pull up on the tick and Tick Twister®.
