We read each comment also from the point of view of continuous product optimization. Thus, indications of the difficulty of targeting small ticks with the large, closed gripper head have led to the development of the open, yellow gripper head, which went into series production after extensive testing in mid-2019. With it, small ticks can be targeted even more precisely. Their removal may require several attempts due to the fur and hair. But with the Tickgripper you are on the safe side!

Fantastic Equipment

Brilliant though Expensive piece of equipment. I am using it to extract Ticks from Wild Hedgehogs. I know as I have donated these to other Hedgehog Rescues how useful they are :-)  Imagine having to remove hundreds of Ticks from an injured Baby Hedgehog. The only downside is they do not make a smaller attach head for the really small ticks which you have to wait for them to grow to remove them :-(  Otherwise can’t fault it.

Ease of use

Delivery was good but have only given three stars as I don't feel I was able to give it a fair trial due to the position of the tick. It is well made and I think it will be very effective in different circumstances.

I have a working dog who is always picking up ticks and do not approve of using chemicals as a solution to the problem. I wanted a safe and easy way to remove them on what has become a regular basis. I could not be happier with this product as it's easy to use and very good at getting the pests off. Brilliant!
