The safest, most effective method of removing a tick is the Tick Plier. The Tick Plier's cradle head design is safer than tweezers and removes the tick without squeezing
saliva into the skin. A 20x lens confirms removal, and the plier secures the tick after removal for identification
and disposal. No need to touch the tick!
The Sawyer Extractor Pump Kit
can remove injected tick saliva and reduce
the possibility of infection if the tick has been in place for some time.
Wash bite area with soap and water, apply rubbing alcohol to avoid infection.
