Protect yourself from potentially harmful tick bites when out and about in the countryside.
An increasing problem in Britain, ticks can sometimes carry the bacteria that cause Lyme Disease. If left undiagnosed, it can lead to joint and muscle pain and fatigue as well as rarer serious complications that can affect the kidneys, nervous system and heart.
The Tickless Tick Repeller emits ultrasonic impulses that are imperceptible to humans and animals, but frighten ticks away. Completely safe, humane and chemical-free, it works within a radius of 3 metres. Simply attach the device to your clothing using the clip on the back or pass a lanyard through the hole in the top, ensuring the grille isn't covered. It comes with a built-in battery that lasts for 10-12 months.
The product seems quite good. The manufacturers however need to work on the "clip" mechanism as it does not adjust easily to fit onto a shirt/pair of shorts shorts etc.
SO FAR SO GOOD!
Several years ago my husband had Lyme Disease quite badly. This year he had already had fifteen tick bites. Then I spotted this gadget in your catalogue. He has worn it ever since (six weeks now ) and has not been bitten since. Coincidence? Don't think so . So at the time of writing this review we are impressed with this gadget which he wears on his belt.
Not sure why this has a belt clip as it would fall off mine. Put it on a lanyard and it was fine didn't meet any ticks
