APRF™ Technology (Anti Parasite Removal Film) used in KICK THE TICK® protects against the tick being torn during the process of removing it from the host.
A detailed examination of the removed tick’s body, previously treated with the product, confirmed the removal of „complete ticks” (complete idiosoma and gnatosoma (snout)). The film preventing the parasite from breaking their body parts completely covered the body of the ticks, which could be clearly seen in the microscope’s eyepiece.
All the ticks has been left for the observation for the period of 24 hours. No cryogenic effect was observed, which is the main mechanism of action of the preparation.
