Frequently Asked Questions
Can you remove small ticks with the remover?
Of course, you just have to put the tip a little further into the skin close to the tick. The tip is so shaped, that even the smallest of nymphs can be caught at the edge of the tip. A nymph can be just 3-4 tenths of a millimeter, i.e. smaller than the thickness of the loop material. Therefore, press the loop out again and check the inside to make sure the removal has succeeded.
Can it be used both on animals and humans?
