You need Tick Twister®

There are a number of different types of tick found in the USA including the Wood tick, Dog tick, Relapsing fever tick, Pajaroello tick, Deer tick, Black-legged tick and the Lone star tick. Tick Twister® is THE most efficient set of tick removal tools for removing ticks, any location on people and animals such as dogs, cats and horses:
  • without leaving the mouth-parts of the tick implanted in the skin
  • without compressing the abdomen of the tick, minimizing the transfer of infectious agents (Lyme disease, Babesiosis, etc.)
  • without ether or other products
  • in a few seconds, without pain
Keep a Tick Twister® pack in your house, your car, your backpack, tackle box and your emergency kit - anywhere you might need it. It's so small, you can even carry one in your pocket! The Tick Twister® Pro model was designed with a hole through the top of the handle, so it can be hung on a key ring or cord.
  • 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®.




The tick's body is not compressed while detaching it from the skin.
  • Squeezing or crushing the body of the tick may force infective body fluids through the mouthparts and into the wound site.
The tick is rotated instead of pulled.
  • When ticks bite, they insert their long, central mouth-part (called the hypostome) into the skin. The hypostome is covered with sharp, backward-facing barbs (similar to a harpoon) which help keep the tick firmly attached while feeding. The twisting motion of the Tick Twister® removes the tick while keeping the tick's mouth-parts intact. Pulling on a tick with ordinary tweezers can leave the mouth-parts embedded in the skin.
