Finnish gentleman discovers tick trap – during testing 100 ticks were collected in 15 minutes

NordenBladet – The Finnish fellow Reima grew tired of ticks and invented a smart tick trap. During testing within 15 minutes this trap attracted nearly 100 ticks and tick larvae.

Reima Kutila developed a tick trap that from now on he is producing and marketing from his garage. The trap invites ticks with the warmth and carbon dioxide, giving the impression of a passer by, either human or animal, mediates Iltalehti. The trap is made from fabric, with pockets sewn on it, and the pockets are stuffed with pads that are warmed up to 40 degrees, and carbon dioxide is blown from a balloon underneath the fabric.

Iltalehti was witnessing the event when the trap was tested in Espoo and when during 15 minutes 100 ticks and larvae were stuck on it.
