The Original Tick Key™

Keeping Your Home and Your Family Healthy and Clean

Tick KeyThis summer, don't worry about bringing bugs and pests into the home. With the Original Tick Key™, you can easily remove ticks that have latched onto yourself or your animal friends.

Veterinarian and physician endorsed, the Original Tick Key™ is 99.9% effective on the removal of all sizes and types of ticks and safe to use on children, adults, and many types of pets. It is the only tick removal device on the planet that uses natural forward leverage to remove the entire tick, head and all, without touching even the toughest engorged ticks.

The Original Tick Key™ is manufactured in the U.S. and has made
an impact on several tick-borne research and public health organizations. It was presented at SuperZoo 2009 – the national show for pet retailers – and earned an interview and published article with MSNBC. In fact, the Original Tick Key™ was honored as one of Good Morning America's Best Health Products of 2009 and also one of their Best Pet Products of 2009. It is already being sold in several retail establishments, in the U.S. and 18 different countries.

The Original Tick Key™ is made to be placed on a key ring for easy access, while it is also easily stored in a wallet, pocket, on a collar, saddle, or leash. It is fabricated from high-strength anodized aluminum and currently available in its 6 original metallic colors: green, blue, orange, purple, red, and pewter – plus multiple new colors that vary. Private labeling available.

How to Use: Place the key over the tick in the slot. Pull key away from tick sliding along the skin. The tick is removed, head and all!

Why You Need This Product: Conventional tick-removal methods are not always the safest.

  • Don't Remove Ticks With Your Fingers: In many cases, a tick is likely to be carrying pathogens such as lyme disease or ehrlichiosis. Pulling on a tick, even with tweezers, can tear the mouth parts from the body of the tick and leave embedded parts in the host.

  • Don't Squeeze, Crush or Squash a Tick: This can force spirochete and other infective body fluids through the mouth parts of the tick into the host.

  • Don't Apply Substances to a Tick: Applying any substances such as petroleum jelly, fingernail polish remover, repellents, or a lighted match upset or harm the tick and almost always cause the tick to vomit the contents of its stomach back into the host. Ticks can live without air for long periods, and attempts to smother it may allow disease transmission for hours.

You can't afford NOT to have this great new product!
