Midge & Tick Protection

Being a Scottish company, we know all about midges – including how to stop the little blighters in their tracks!

A must-have for outdoor enthusiasts, our special midge-spec head nets prevent even the most determined of beasties from getting inside. We also offer a waist-up midge protective jacket for when conditions are really bad – a godsend for fishermen, those who work outdoors and others exposed to midges for any length of time.

For maximum protection, the nets can be used alongside our specially formulated Trek midge repellent – an effective solution for the whole family that also prevents horsefly and tick bites.

You can also be exposed to ticks throughout the UK when spending time outdoors. An infected tick bite can lead to Lyme Disease and other tick-borne diseases. We have two products aimed at tackling the ever growing issue of Lyme Disease: a tick remover and the Unique Lyme Disease Test Kit.

Suitable for humans and animals, our Lyme Disease Test Kit offers the end user independent, accredited laboratory testing of a tick for the Borrelia bacteria, which are known to be the cause of Lyme disease, with fast, secure, verifiable results. These results can then be shown to a medical practitioner or veterinarian to obtain rapid medical treatment.

For more information on how to avoid midge bites, see our FAQs.

Lyme Disease Test Kit

Lyme Disease Test Kit

Suitable for use on humans and animals, our Lyme Disease Test Kit is a unique kit to test ticks for the presence of the Borellia bacteria associated with Lyme Disease.  Results are provided within a maximum of four working days from receipt of the tick as an independent laboratory report, which can be shown to a medical or veterinary practitioner.

Rapid, early treatment of Lyme disease is crucial to avoid the development of chronic, long term symptoms, however current medical testing is limited in early stage infections. Our kit is an invaluable aid in successful, rapid diagnosis.

Tick Remover

Tick Remover

An essential piece of kit for the fast and effective removal of ticks from the skin. Infected tick bites can cause diseases such as Lyme Disease and Tick-borne Encephalitis. The longer a tick is attached to the skin, the greater the risk of infection, meaning quick tick removal is vital.

The Tick Remover includes two sizes of tool per pack, meaning you can remove both large and small ticks. Suitable for removing ticks from your skin or your dogs.
