Tools for Removing Ticks

Anytime I go camping, I inevitably find myself traipsing through dense woods in a search for firewood. Camping season is, unfortunately, also tick season, and it’s rare to get back to the tent and not find a few of those nasty buggers latched onto my skin. Typically I spend some time hunting about my body, picking them off with varied success. They’re pretty tough to get off!

Kevin Kelly’s got a few good recommendations when it comes to tick removal: the Tick Twister and the Trix Tick Remover. The Tick Twister works by getting between your skin (or your dog’s) and the tick, and twisting it out of its death grip, while the Trix Tick uses a lasso to wrangle the tick off of your skin (seriously).
