The O'Tom Tick Twister is the latest tick removal solution for humans, providing quick and painless removal of ticks without having to squeeze the tick itself. The Tick Twister has been endorsed by the UK's leading Lyme disease charity BADA-UK, and comes recommended by its patron, Ray Mears.
Removing ticks can be tricky at the best of times; it can also cause infections due to the squeezing action often applied during the removal process. The
Tick Twister not only removes the tick quickly and painlessly, it also reduces the risk of infection due to the unique way in which it removes the tick itself.
You may be surprised to learn that ticks are second only to mosquitoes for carrying disease to humans. Over recent years, there has been an increase in tick numbers in many parts of the UK and Europe, in part due to global warming and changes in farming practice. In studies, the O'Tom Tick Twister was found to be significantly better than other devices on the market today for its speed of removal, ease of grabbing the tick, force needed to extract the tick and the condition of the mouthparts after removal.
Ticks can be found in various places across the UK and Europe, including woodlands, moorland, meadows and rural areas. Areas of Britain that are usually associated with tick-borne diseases are Exmoor, The Lake District, New Forest, The Scottish Highlands, Thetford Forest, The North York Moors and The South Downs. Ticks thrive wherever there is plenty of vegetation and diverse wildlife. With the increase in people holidaying within the UK and Europe, the need to include a tick remover in their first aid kit is now more important than ever. Anyone who spends time in the countryside, whether for camping, farming, hiking, walking the dog or simply on a day out with the family, should carry a pack of O'Tom Tick Twisters with them.
