Ticks can be a real problem for both people and pets when they are participating in outdoor activities like hiking or camping. The Tick Wrangler will safely remove all sizes and types of ticks without having to touch the insect. It removes the entire tick –including the head – and can be used on people or pets. It is made from sturdy aluminum, which won’t bend, rust, crack or break. The compact design lets you drop it into your first aid kit or you can use the included carabiner to attach it easily to your gear. A ruler is included to help you identify the type of tick. Knowing the type of tick will help determine if there is a risk of Lyme disease or other types of infection.
