ProTick Remedy kit includes a 5X magnifier, a multi-species tick id card and a detailed 4 color pamphlet on tick identification and protection. It makes this sometimes difficult and distasteful task easier than any other tool. It's the original "super simple tick lifter". It's the choice of professionals by a wide margin because it's very convenient to carry and it works . . . easily. The ProTick was superior when tested at Ohio State University against other tick removers and tweezers. Here's a quote from a research paper published in 1995. " . . . while others (tick removers and tweezers) broke the tip of the hypostrome and chelicerae (mouthparts) in at least one tick. The Pro-Tick Remedy succeeded in removing all fifty-one ticks without damaging any mouthparts . . . results indicate that the Pro-Tick Remedy removed the most tick cement while causing the least damage . . ." More recent tests against nymph ticks (the dangerous immature ones) showed that the ProTick Remedy removes nymph ticks better than any other instrument. Of critical importance is not only the intuitive ease of use that a tool design offers but also it must be a tool you can carry easily. If you can't carry it, really carry it, and do so without changing your whole lifestyle then it's of no value. The ProTick meets and exceeds any expectation for ease of use and ease of carry. And since it's made of steel you can rely on its precision indefinitely.
All models come with detailed information regarding protection from ticks and the most advanced 4 color tick identication pamplet available anywhere. Also included is bead chain with an attached 5X teardrop magnifier.
