Instructions for use
1. Hold the tick remover between your thumb and middle finger and press the back of the tool with your index finger: the gripping head will now open.
2. Place the gripping head carefully around the tick — as close as possible to the skin — and then close the gripping head.
3. Rotate the clamped tick slightly to the left and slightly to the right until it is partially released. With a few gentle tugs, pull the tick out in a motion perpendicular to the skin. Disinfect the bite area and note down the date of the bite in your diary.
4. Use the Care Plus® Tick-Test to test the tick for the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium.
Warning! Never anaesthetize the tick with alcohol or any other anaesthetizing substances. Also never heat the tick, not even with a cigarette.
