“The ProTickMe identification, removal and submission kit features an educational pamphlet outlining the life cycle of deer ticks, personal protection strategies, landscape modifications, proper use of repellents, tick-borne disease symptoms and diagnosis/treatment protocols. In addition to the comprehensive pamphlet, the kit also includes: magnified fine point tweezers; two tick submission vials to safely transport removed ticks for identification by physicians, veterinarians, or for pathogen analysis; Tick Identification Guide with removable key tag for key chains; Tick Identification magnet for the home; tick removal and submission information card; adhesive strips, alcohol and antiseptic wipes and a zippered nylon pouch for keeping kit contents at home or on-the-go.
“The ProTickMe kits were designed by Bob and Barb Maurais, professional educators who develop and deliver educational materials and programs for Mainely Ticks. “If you’ve ever removed a tick from yourself, a child or a pet, you know how important it is to have the right tools available immediately, whether at home or on the trail,” comments Bob Maurais. “The longer a deer tick is attached, the greater the chances of contracting Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections.” 1
