It might not feel like it, but tick season is already here — and with warmer temperatures (hopefully) on the horizon, it's important to be cautious of the creepy, crawly critters, especially with the risk of Lyme disease. Whether you're going camping, for a hike or on a quick walk, it's crucial to be aware of your surroundings. It's no joke — the persistent insects are supposedly "fitter, better, faster [and] stronger" this year.

Removing a tick can be difficult without the proper tool, which is why it's essential to be prepared. This Tick Twister Tick Remover Set from Amazon Canada can help remove the bugs from both human and animal skin, making it a great buy for pets and owners alike. At just $10, this tool is a small price to pay for peace of mind this spring and summer.

This tick remover set comes with one small and one large tool.
