Ticks can cause disease in animals and people and Paralysis Ticks can cause illness. The Tick Tornado safely and easily removes the entire tick, reducing the risk of infection and serious illnesses like Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme Disease. By using the Tick's barbed mouth to the Tick Tornado's advantage, the Pull & Twist motion safely and quickly releases the tick's barbs without irritating the tick. Quickly removing the tick in this manner reduces the risk of it spitting back bacteria laden saliva - the leading cause of tick infection and often a result of using tweezers. Created by a veterinarian, the Tick Tornado is an effective alternative to tweezers, matches, or other devices. Just Hook, Lift, Twist!
