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.

  • Made from recyclable, solvent-resistant plastic
  • Lifetime guarantee
  • Each pack contains two Tick Twisters (one for adult-sized ticks and a smaller one for larvae and nymph ticks)
  • Endorsed by BADA-UK and recommended by its patron, Ray Mears
  • Colours may vary

  You should always carry one of these when you are staying in the outdoors. This is probably the easiest to use and least complicated of all the tick removal products on the market. Keep one in your pack and one at home. Also very useful for you dog or other animals.

  Like all the best ideas, so simple and effective. If you go down to the woods today, you'd better take one of these with you.

  Does exactly as it is intended to do. Just completed the Fundamental and although I remained Tick Free some of my fellow student did not. A quick twist and the little blighter is despatched (including mouth parts). On behalf of grateful fellow students 5/5.

  I haven't used this yet, but it's made of high grade plastic and it seems to be well designed, with a wedge-shaped groove into which the dreaded blighters are intended to be manoeuvred, before you ease them out of your skin. Plus there are two sizes. I can't see any way it could be designed or manufactured any better. Sorry can't justify a 5 until I've used it.

  I can only give 4 stars as I haven't used them yet, but based on their design they look the business. I don't seem to attract ticks myself but my wife does and so does our West Highland White, so trust me I have vast experience of removing them. Other tick pullers just don't compare to the simplicity. It's not clear on Woodlore's site but you get two picks - large and small - and the small is essential for those ticks that have only just attached or in their first season (those buggers are so hard to get a grip on).

  Neat device useful for parasite removal; intend to take to Oz. Light design and a good bright colour to reduce the chance of losing.
