The Tick Key solves a problem that many cachers will experience: how to safely remove a tick.
In many cases a tick is likely to be carrying pathogens such as lyme disease, ehrlichiosis and others that are harmful to humans and pets. Tick saliva or blood is something you don't want on your skin. Pulling on a tick, even with tweezers, can tear the mouth parts from the body of the tick and leave embedded parts in the host.
WHY THE TICK KEY?
Squeezing, crushing or squashing a tick can force spirochete and other infectious body fluids through the mouth parts of the tick into the host. Similarly applying substances to a tick such as petroleum jelly, fingernail polish remover or repellents that upset or harm the tick almost always cause the tick to vomit the contents of its stomach back into the host. No matter how badly a tick may want to remove itself, it is incapable of doing so quickly. Attempts to smother a tick are not very successful and can allow for disease transmission for hours. For these reasons cachers need the Tick Key.
The Tick Key is fabricated from high-strength anodized aluminum, not weak plastic for long life and ease of use. Remember to disinfect your tick key after each use.
