Whether you are heading to the highlands, chasing trails or wandering through the woodlands at home or overseas, keep an eye out for ticks on your summer adventures. Carried by deer, foxes, mice and even the prolific grey squirrel, ticks are especially prevalent in late Spring/early summer and need to be removed immediately and correctly to avoid Lymes Disease.
The NHS estimates there are 3k-4k cases of Lymes Disease annually, which can be potentially a devastating condition for the sufferer. The Lifesystems Tick RemoverCard is a credit card sized gadget featuring a magnifying lens and two different size removal tools which slips easily into a wallet or pocket. Priced at just £3.99 and available at outdoor retailer Ellis Brigham.
If you’re planning outdoor activity this Summer it’s a pocket money, pocket sized essential we think you can’t afford to be without – you also use it on your furry friends.
