Ticks are spider-like insects that attach themselves with their mouth parts to the skin of a host and then feed themselves with its blood. Not very pleasant, and finding them firmly attached to you can be quite upsetting, particularly if you’re not quite sure how to deal with them! They have become increasingly common in Northern Europe, and to make matters even worse a tick bite could lead to infection with Lyme’s disease if the tick isn’t carefully removed within 24 hours.
The Trix Tick Lasso tick remover makes removal quick and easy – simply extend the lasso, place it over the tick, let go of the button and then twist and lift away to remove the tick.
Suitable for use with children and pets, and the length of the device makes it easy to use in ears, thick fur or hair and other difficult places.
