O'Tom Tick Remover
Keeping a high-quality Tick remover in the forest school kit is vital, especially with outdoor play in woodland settings, as this is a favoured habitat for the common Tick - a small but frequent parasite of our native land. Many places seem to sell tick removers aimed for use on animals, but at the Forest School Shop we only sell genuine O'Tom Tick Twisters for human use.
Ticks and Diseases
The most well known tick-borne disease is Lyme disease, but there are others too, such as anaplasmosis and tick-borne encephalitis, plus others. The symptoms of these diseases are much like those of flu, but in serious cases can lead to paralysis. Should you or any of your students feel unwell after a tick bite, it's important to consult a doctor as soon as possible.
With the O'Tom Tick Twister the removal of ticks is easy, and much safer than using your hands or other devices which often results in squeezing the body of the ticj which will cause infection. The O'Tom Tick Twister simply inserts under the tick and with a twisting motion will remove the tick without causing any pain.
