The special gripping head ensures that the tick is grabbed firmly with minimum risk that any part of the tick is damaged, allowing a complete, “clean” removal, leaving no claws, pincers, of parts in the victim’s skin / bite-wound. The gripping surface also has a recess for the removal of nymphs, a development phase of young ticks. The tweezers kit includes clear instructions and two (2) alcohol pads to disinfect the bite area AFTER removing the tick.
What you should not do
Do not use alcohol or any other substance to anaesthetize the tick
Do not scare the tick in any other way, e.g. with a burning cigarette, since this may cause the tick to be more active
Do not crush the tick
