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.
