The TickCard receives praise from experts and outdoor enthusiasts alike.
The TickCard offers many reasons why customers appreciate it.

Borreliosis bacteria (Lyme disease) live in the digestive tract of infected ticks. The tick can regurgitate these microbes at any time into it’s host, but does so especially when stressed or squeezed. As part of the normal feeding process, to keep the host’s blood flowing, the tick will usually regurgitate into its host after 8-24 hours in any case. (Bon appétit!) That explains why it is vital to remove ticks safely, quickly and correctly – without stressing the tick! And why it is vital to keep a TickCard handy! The internet is full of horror stories (see also YouTube) showing how terrible and complicated Lyme disease can be, for example see this short trailer on the bada-uk.org website: “One Tick Away” DVD trailer (wmv format) The sensible choice to help reduce the risk of dangerous infection is to be prepared. Being well prepared is so simple: keep a TickCard in your wallet during the Summer months so you don’t have to delay proper removal should you have a tick.

Experts recommend to remove ticks safely, quickly and correctly.
There are many myths about how to best remove a tick, such as covering it in petroleum jelly or twisting it counter clock-wise. However, biologists found that squeezing, twisting, burning or in any way stressing a tick increases the risk of it injecting harmful agents into the bloodstream of its host, thus potentially causing disease. Developed in co-operation with scientists and doctors specialising in tick-borne diseases, the patented TickCard™ utilises an entirely new principle: ticks are removed correctly and easily, without the use of force! This method helps avoid ticks releasing their dangerous microbes into the bloodstream!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Ticks can carry dangerous microbes in their saliva and body fluids:



•Do not squeeze, stress or burn a tick – it may regurgitate or put more saliva into you.
•Do not use petroleum jelly, oil or any chemical products before removing it.
•Never pull or twist a tick as its mouthparts may break off and remain in the skin.
•Avoid touching removed ticks. Dispose of ticks safely. Do not squash them between your finger nails.
•If possible disinfect the bite area after removal and wash your hands and the TickCard with hot soapy water.

The TickCard™ can help you avoid potentially serious disease – keep it with you and don’t delay proper removal!
