Tick Removal Tools
Ticks carry numerous bacteria, viruses and protozoa that cause diseases such as Lyme, Typhus and Babesiosis. The best way to avoid getting bitten by a tick is to avoid walking in humid dense undergrowth, but this is often impractical. Covering up legs with trousers or gaiters will help to reduce the chances of being bitten by a tick as will the application of a DEET insect repellent to your skin. Should you have a tick on your skin then you need to carefully remove it with a tick tool to prevent the tick from releasing more saliva or regurgitating its stomach contents in to your bloodstream through the bite wound.
