Episode 41: Meet Tick Expert Tick Man Dan

Cindy Kennedy, FNP, speaks with Dan Wolff (a.k.a. Tick Man Dan), who is a tick expert, the founder of TickEase, Inc., and the creator of an effective dual purpose tweezer-like tick removal device.

Dan Wolff

Wolff is an outdoorsman, pet lover and a devoted father from Waltham, Massachusetts, with a degree in business from Skidmore College. When he moved to the suburbs, he found that the tick population was out of control and the act of preventing and removing them was a struggle even with products already on the market.

To combat this problem, he founded TickEase, Inc. and created an effective dual purpose tweezer-like tick removal device. TickEase, Inc.’s mission is to provide safe and effective tools for removing and repelling ticks, facilitate tick testing and educate the public for the prevention of tick-borne illnesses like Lyme disease.

Wolff spends a lot of his time speaking to groups at events to educate the public about ticks and proper removal. The TickEase tool, combined with Dan’s knowledge, has become so incredibly useful that the company is a Prevention Partner of the University of Rhode Island’s TickEncounter Resource Center.
