What is a tick?

A tick is a small arthropod parasite that looks like a small spider that feeds on the blood of passing hosts. Both animals and humans can be affected by a tick bite, but humans are not the preferred host of a tick, as they prefer rodents, birds, sheep or deer. A host is selected by odor, vibration and change in temperatures, and when the host passes; the tick starts its journey by simply attaching itself to the feet or ankles, and begins searching for a spot to feed. The most common tick in Europe is the sheep tick.

Why is a tick dangerous?

Ticks are dangerous because they can spread bacteria, viruses, parasites and infections while sucking blood from their prey. If stunned or heated while attached to a host, the tick goes into a state of shock which actually increases the risk of injecting its saliva with pathogens. There is one type of bacteria spread by ticks that makes them very dangerous indeed called the Borrelia burgdorferi (Spirochaetes) bacterium. This causes Lyme disease.

What is Lyme disease?

A system disease that causes muscle pain, muscle weakness, and joint pains. In some cases a characteristically shaped expanding ‘bull’s eye’ rash appears, but the famous red circle (Erythema migrans) does not always occur, so after a tick bite it is advisable to write down the date of the bite your vague health symptoms, and tell your doctor that you have been bitten by a tick.

After a tick bite it is essential to remove the tick with a tick remover as soon as possible (preferably within 8 hours) and check whether the tick is infected.

Treatment against Lime Disease is most likely to be successful when started directly after a tick bite.


  • within eight (8) hours of being bitten by a tick, remove the tick carefully with the Care Plus® Tick-Out tick remover.
  • make a note of the date of the tick bite in your diary
  • put the tick in a sealed tube. • put a few drops on the tick.
  • use the wooden stick to crush the tick.
  • put 2 to 3 drops of the mixture with the pipette on the test cassette.
  • wait max. 20 minutes.
  • the test is positive (tick has borrelia bacteria) if a line turns red in the ‘T’. A red line in the ‘C’ means that the test was successful.
  • Expiry date: 04/2018
