world's first and only medical patch system to remove embedded
and Black-Legged Ticks (Ixodes scapularis), formerly known as the
Tick from people and pets. Ticks are exoskeleton breathers. They
can be made to extract themselves from humans or pets by
smothering the lower half
of their body.
The Rid-A-Tick patch is
made from 3M® medical tape. This
latex-free medical tape carries FDA approval. Each patch is
approximately 1" in
diameter and is designed to cover the majority of tick sizes.
RID-A-TICK patches are
placed on the deeply embedded tick and gently
pressed into place, making sure that no air can reach the tick's
waiting period of several minutes, up to thirty for extreme cases,
allow time for the tick to "back out". The patch is removed and
folded in half to encapsulate the tick for easy disposal. If the

Keeping the patch sealed
to the skin is the most critical aspect of
tick removal. Multiple moving ticks can be removed by simply
patch on them, moving from tick to tick. Perspiration and skin
interfere with the adhesive. Be sure the area around the embedded
tick is as clean and dry as possible.
