+1 for the tick key. Anytime we've found a tick on our dogs or ourselves this thing removes it super easy and always gets all of it.

Personally I'd go with a 4 person unless you have a pressing need to try for smaller.

I recommend having a towel to wipe them down as they come into the tent and I really like having a moving blanket down inside to protect the tent and catch dirt.

Remember to check for ticks daily and have a removal system ready.

Don't remove them with tweezers, if you're concerned about doing it the right way. Pinching them with the tweezers could result in the head being left in the skin, which could lead to infection.
Tick keys are the way to go, they're designed specifically to remove the head with the body.

Awareness is most effective. People are often so much in their heads that they don't notice what's crawling on them. But if you brush or wash a crawling tick off before it bites, that's safest. Once it bites, it releases a chemical that can inhibit your perception of it.

After awareness, self-inspection is important. Lyme disease is not transmitted until the tick has been attached for 24 - 36 hours, so thorough daily inspection should prevent infection.

  • Long pants

  • Long-sleeved shirts

  • Tie-down cuffs

  • Hat

  • Permethrin on cuffs, collar, boot tops (keep Permethrin away from cats; it's very toxic to them)

  • Other repellents can deter ticks, but Permethrin deters and kills them if they contact it

  • Daily self-inspection; you usually have some minutes or hours before a tick attaches and begins to feed (inspection is more effective with a willing companion; use a mirror if you don't have a partner)

  • Carry a tick key or other removal device

  • Learn proper and improper methods of removal, because if the mouth parts are left embedded in the skin they can transmit disease

  • Be attentive and check more frequently in areas known for harboring ticks

  • Use a screened shelter when sitting for long periods: shelter 1 | shelter 2 | shelter 3

I lean more toward separate tools for each function; knife, tweezers, scissors, tick pick, clippers, pen. If you get UL versions of each, the total weight is about the same as a multi-tool, but each tool works far better than the multi-tool version.
[CountyComm] ( is a good source for some of these tools.

Get a tick key, they're cheap. You slide it under the attached tick and pop it off.

I got a tick attached to me last week, after a stroll through the park. First time that's ever happened to me, as far as I'm aware.

Caught it about four hours after getting home, used one of those keys to pop if off.

Don't overthink it. Hiking/camping is just the art of being outside and not dying - if you're only going on a one or two day trip it's really easy not to die.

You should bring at least 1.5L of water per day of your hike, more when the weather is hot like this.

Use sunscreen, especially if you're on a hike without much tree cover.

Make sure your cellphone is fully charged and have either a paper map or a map that you can access offline.

Bring food.

Tell someone where you're going before you go.

Carry your gear in a backpack or fannypack, not in your hands or a handbag.

Make sure your pack is comfortable before you leave for the trail - you'll be wearing it on your shoulders for hours so make sure the weight is distributed well and that there are no spots which poke you in the back. You probably don't need a special hiking backpack with a frame, you'll be fine with a bookbag. Bonus points if the straps are padded and it has a strap that goes across your breast.

Ignore anyone who tells you to get hiking boots. Just wear a lightweight sneaker that you know you're comfortable wearing all day. If you're going overnight bring along a pair of sandals or something you can wear at camp. Your feet will be swollen at the end of the day so make sure you sit with them elevated for at least a few minutes occasionally.

This is tick country so check yourself for ticks when you stop. They like the warm crevasses of your body - think crotch, armpits, behind your knee, etc. Don't worry about ticks to much because you'll usually have a few hours between when they get on you and when they actually start sucking blood. You can safely remove them using a tick key.

Anyone have any luck with these? I've been working in the woods a a lot this spring and though I havn't got a tick yet, some of the guys I've worked with have.

u/GrungyGardener · 2 pointsr/povertyfinance

One thing I didn't know was that the topical medicine will wash off with water. We kept putting on the monthly tick/flea medicine but he kept getting ticks, because we were also giving him baths every other week.
Next best thing we got was the Tick Key ( ) to help with pulling them off.

u/o0solo0o · 2 pointsr/discgolf

I picked myself up one of these handy keychain tick keys last year for easy removal after a lyme disease outbreak in my city last year. Would recommend.

u/Meph616 · 1 pointr/todayilearned

I'm surprisingly lucky with tick incidents, living by Ithaca NY. I've only ever had 1 (last year actually), on my inner thigh. Thankfully the bastard decided that was a good spot and didn't keep climbing up.

I just got back jogging from a state park and I'm thinking how few fucks I'd give about the next tick if I could just get this vaccine. But since I don't have that I always keep this tick remover in my hiking bag. Haven't had to use it yet, yay. Small investment, all of $8, for simple/effective tick removal.

u/thesneakymonkey · 1 pointr/WildernessBackpacking

I have been a big fan of the tick key. I also have a small set of tweezers on my SAK classic (0.8oz). I could totally see myself doing the same as you though. Panic in the moment and just wanting it off of you.

u/corpusdilecti · 1 pointr/okeechobeemusicfest

This is the Tick Key that I have. I picked mine up at Dicks sporting goods last year before Peach Fest.

You can also use tick removal tools. I have one similar to this

But tweezers are just fine too. However, you can't use the tweezers you use to pluck eyebrows. Those are too wide and will crush things. You need tweezers that are really narrow at the tips. These are useful, they have the narrow tips at an angle that is easy to get the ticks with and it has the same tip as the key to slide onto the tick and pull it out like you're pulling out a nail
