The De-Ticker is a different kind of tick remover and is not a "tick puller". It is precision made and utilizes spring-loaded claws combined with a turning motion to remove ticks without pulling - gently, easily, completely and consistently! Finally, a product that eliminates all of the messy and dangerous methods practiced in the past! One try will convince the user that the De-Ticker is by far the most effective and reliable tick remover available, making other methods of tick removal obsolete. It was developed in the Research Triangle Park of North Carolina, USA and is protected by patents in the USA and Canada.
