TRIX TICK REMOVER
THE ORIGINAL AND THE BEST
Trix Tick Remover - Product Information
The Trix Tick Remover is a Swedish product, it works as a lasso and is very fast and easy to attach to all ticks. The lasso action provides a semi automatic method of correctly gripping the tick. Placement and slight pressure of the tip into the skin are the only requirements - the lasso pulls the tool into the correct position automatically. The Trix Tick Lasso can be used on all sizes of ticks from minuscule to large (full) on pets or humans. The Trix comes recommended from Swedish hospitals, GP surgeries (Vårdcentraler), Veterinary surgeons, various wildlife organisations and outdoor pursuit organisations.
If you do find a tick on you or your pet, it is very important to remove it quickly and safely. Experts recommend tick removal tools rather than tweezers unless trained in their use. Never try to remove a tick using chemicals, cigarettes or vaseline as this can cause the tick to regurgitate infection into your blood stream.
The clever design of the Trix Tick Remover makes it easy to use in ears, thick fur and other difficult to reach places. The remover also
works very well when fur or hair comes into the lasso loop - hooks and tweezers are not so forgiving.

Ticks are arthropods belonging to the class Arachnida together with spiders and scorpions.
There are two families of ticks, hard and soft. All ticks are parasites that suck blood from vertebrates, like birds, reptiles and mammals, including humans.
The hard ticks Ixodes, vectors ofLyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Ehrlichia, Babesia and lots of other diseases, is the most common tick in the tempered parts of the world. The infection is transmitted from the host‘s blood to the tick, but can also be transmitted between male and female ticks and the different stages of tick development.
During its life cycle, the tick undergoes different stages of development. After hatching from the egg, the larvae further molts to a nymph and finally ends as adult. During each stage the tick needs to get nutrition from blood.
There are approximately 880 species of ticks spread over the tempered zones of the world. Ticks have been on earth for as many as 250 million years. They like warm areas with high humidity. Usually they sit on stalk of grass waving its claw supplied front legs in search for a passing host.
The most common tick (Ixodes.ricinus) has no eyes instead it uses its sensory organs to detect an approaching victim.
Tick born diseases
Ticks can transmit a number of different diseases which are transferred by micro organisms such as; rickettsia, virus, protozoa, spirochetosis, piroplasmosis etc. Scientists are conducting a lot of research on ticks as a source for diseases and new diseases are also discovered.
Lyme disease is the worlds most common tick born disease, caused by bacteria-like spirochete which can be present in the tick’s body. In 1975 the first cases of Lyme disease were reported in the city of Lyme, Connecticut. Sometimes a ring shaped reddish rash can be seen around the bite. A typical rash has a size over 5 cm and is expanding and turns pale towards the centre of it. Lyme disease has been called the "great masquerader" because its symptoms resemble many other diseases. Lyme can be treated with antibiotics.
