ProTick Remedy kit (without 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.
Tick ID card pictures include: American Dog tick (d. Variabilis), Deer tick (ixodes Scapularis), Lone Star tick (a. Americanum).
The ProTick Remedy 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 hypostome and chelicerae (mouthparts) in at least one (American Dog tick) tick. The ProTick Remedy succeeded in removing all fifty-one ticks without damaging any mouthparts . . . results indicate that the ProTick Remedy removed the most tick cement while causing the least damage . . ." More recent tests against nymph deer ticks (the dangerous immature ones) showed that the ProTick Remedy removes nymph deer ticks on par with the #4 tweezer, by successfully removing 100% of the tested nymph deer ticks.
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. The critical time period is to remove a feeding tick within 24 hours. This is not a guarantee but is the primary recommendation. When you need that tick removed, you need it now because most of us don't really know exactly when the ticked attacked us. Was it an hour ago, 10 hours ago . . . who knows? The ProTick Remedy is in your pocket, or your wallet, at your side ready to pull the tick off and stop its feeding. The ProTick Remedy meets and exceeds any expectation for ease of use and ease of carry. And because 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 identification tutorial pamphlet available anywhere.
