TickEase Helps Bring Fun — and safety — back to the Outdoors

TickEase Helps Bring Fun — and safety — back to the Outdoors

by Ted Lund

Spring and Summer are prime-times to enjoy the outdoors, but it’s also high-season for encounters with ticks and the potential to contract tick-borne illnesses like Lyme disease. But now, thanks to TickEase, you and your family and pets can enjoy the outdoors knowing you can simply and quickly deal with ticks.

TEpic16_300TickEase is the only dual purpose tick removal tool on the market; it can be used on both people and animals. It was designed to conform to the most highly recommended method of tick removal by medical and other industry experts and boasts a unique design that features a thin-tipped tweezer on one side — angled for ease of use — that will remove even the smallest of nymphal-stage deer ticks. The other side of TickEase is slotted and specifically designed to remove larger ticks like the American dog tick that is common on most pets.

This unique time saving and highly specialized tool is the brainchild of Dan Wolff, suburban deer expert and tick prevention specialist.

“Most people think ticks are a kind of insect, but they’re not,” says Wolff. “Ticks are actually arachnids — which places them in the same family as spiders and mites. What really makes them special is that blood is the only thing they feed on.”

As opposed to mosquitos, which are quick-in/quick-out feeders, ticks may remain attached to their host for days or as long as a week to complete feeding. This is where proper removal techniques come in.

Once thought safe, traditional methods of tick removal can cause the tick to regurgitate some of its meal, releasing potential disease causing TEpic5_300pathogens into the host. Remove them incorrectly, and the head and mouth can remain embedded in the host, potentially resulting in infection.

Some 300,000 Americans are affected by Lyme disease every year; early detection and removal is essential to preventing infection. TickEase is the right tool to make that possible. We want to give outdoor enthusiasts, families and pet owners peace of mind by providing a safe and effective tool for removing ticks. TickEase, Inc. promotes education, awareness and prevention steps to combat the increased incidences of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses nationally and around the world.

Where to Vacation? Go Big or Stay Home!

We speak about luxury vacations, budget vacations, vacations that are fun for the kids, and many more areas of travel at this time of year. But there is also a category that many do not touch upon because they “assume” it is far too difficult for those on a budget to be able to enjoy these jaw-dropping wonders. However, whether you are a backpacker looking to “become a journeyman” and all you need is the price of the plane ticket; or one that is saving up for that “ultimate trip,” these are locations where either can go to create memories that will be among the greatest and grandest of their entire lives.

How Are Retail Sales in 2017?

Despite consumer uncertainty, as well as a very sluggish beginning to 2017, the U.S. retail sales industry is projected to increase 4% this year. Headlines show that many retailers and companies posted “soft” holiday sales to end 2016, which caused some notable retailers to either cut jobs or close stores as a result. However, when it comes to 2017, the National Retail Federation (NFR) released an economic forecast projecting the retail industry (this excludes automobiles, gas stations, and restaurants) to grow and reach that 4% increase aim.
