Medi Freeze Tick Off

Ticks are parasites that feed on human and animal blood. There are many tick species in Australia though the most common species that attacks humans is the paralysis tick, Ixodes holocyclus.

Ticks occur in humid, moist bushy areas. They are not very mobile but rely on passing animals (hosts) e.g. bandicoots and black rats to both feed on and transport them.

It is not safe to squeeze a tick as this will inject the poison into the skin. The safest method is to freeze the tick and remove it from the skin. Use our Medi Freeze Tick Off product to do this and follow all instructions in the manual.

Ensure that you position the opening of the application 1cm above the tick in order to freeze it correctly. Ensure you repeat the process multiple times to ensure the tick is frozen completely. Do not squeeze.
