How to remove a tick

Australian Health Department Health Guidelines for Tick Removal tick ease tweezers Tick Removal TickEase tweezers







Prompt and complete removal of engorged ticks is vital to avoiding tick-borne diseases. 

  • Don't panic! Remove the tick as soon as you realise it's on you.
  • Never remove a tick with your fingers.
  • Aggravating a tick by squeezing, burning or putting any substance on it can cause the tick to release its toxic saliva into you, which increases the risk of a tick-borne disease.
  • When the tick is agitated it will attach itself to you or your pet with greater determination.
  • Using fine pointed tweezers grip the tick as close to the surface of the skin as possible.
  • Pull upward with a steady even pressure and never twist or jerk a tick out.
  • Clean the area with rubbing alcohol or disinfectant.
  • Always wash your hands with warm soapy water and disinfect the Tickease after use.
If you have symptoms such as a rash, swelling, flu-like symptoms, or an anaphylaxis reaction, consult a Doctor immediately. 
Using blunt household tweezers can increase the chances of tearing the tick. They are also ineffective in removing tiny nymph-stage ticks or when the tick is engorged.

Only the TickEase is designed for the job!
