A tick removal card, from the creators of the famous insect repellent.
This clever little credit-card sized device is perfectly designed to remove ticks quickly and easily. The Smidge Quick Untick Card has two different-sized notches for both small and large ticks. It also incorporates a magnifying glass to help inspect the tick. The safe and quick removal of a tick reduces the change of infection, including with Lyme disease and as the card will slip easily into a purse or wallet, it should be an essential part of your outdoor gear. It's great for your pets as well and the smaller of the two card notches is also perfect for removing insect stings and thorns.
Smidge insect repellent, which you can find in a new travel bottle here, is a Scottish staple for me in the months between late May right through till the end of September.
So, I was pleased to see the guys behind the leading insect repellent have also released a small, credit card-sized tick removal card, which has 2 notches for the big ones and the little ones, and even a small magnifying glass to help find them.
As this can be stashed in a wallet or purse, it’s a vital bit of kit, that you can almost forget you have on you until the need arises.
