With the nice weather upon us more people will be venturing out into the woodlands and parks. So on your return its probably a good idea to check yourself, your kids and your pets for ticks. There are of course ways to help with tick prevention, a good website to look at is http://tickbitepreventionweek.org/
This morning I found a tick on one of our cats and having removed these little buggers from my self in the past I headed for my first aid kit and retrieved my tick twister and proceeded to removed the tick from the cat.
The tick twister is a great little tool that makes it very easy to remove the tick. The pack I have has two sizes of twister to cater for ticks of different sizes. This website http://www.otom.com/how-to-remove-a-tick will show you all about the tick twister, how to use one and where to buy some. These will set you back about £5 which in my opinion is a well worth addition to your first aid kit.
