O'Tom Tick Twister
PLEASE BE AWARE, THAT THE BRAND MAY VARY - BUT THE PRODUCT WILL BE THE SAME.
By popular demand - Greenman Bushcraft now stock the only 'name' in the removal of ticks - the O'Tom Tick Twister. We were quite surprised to see how many companies were selling the veterinary tick removers for human use! So, we thought we'd introduce the real thing, and solely for use on humans!
The O'Tom Tick Twister is the go-to product when it comes to removing the common Tick - a nasty parasite which contrary to popular belief is actually quite common around the British Isles, as well as other parts of the world. Ticks are not only a blood sucking nuisance, but they also spread diseases to humans, so having the means to tackle these nasty critters is crucial and a high-quality tick remover should form part of any first aid kit or outdoor survival pack.
Diseases transmitted by ticks to humans
There are several diseases that are transmitted by Ticks to humans, such as tick-borne encephalitis, anaplasmosis and of course the most widely known - Lyme disease. The main symptoms of these tick-borne diseases are: flue-like symptoms, fever, pains within the joints, headaches and most seriously paralysis. Removing ticks quickly helps prevent any complications and spread of disease, but should you feel unwell it's important to consult your doctor as soon as possible.
How to Remove Ticks
Removing Ticks without the proper means can be dangerous, and lead to more complications than doing so correctly in the first place. Removing ticks with your hands or make-shift devices often results in squeezing the tick which can lead to infection. With the O'Tom Tick Twister, removing ticks is quick, easy and painless due to the unique way this tool works.
