HEAD LICE FAQ’S

Picture Of Head Lice

 

What Are Head Lice

Lice — or louse in its singular form — are tiny, wingless parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans and other mammals. Though more than 3000 louse species are in existence, three affect humans:

  • Head lice– live in human hair, close to the scalp

  • Body lice– live in clothing and bedding; most commonly found on people who aren’t able to bathe or wash laundry regularly

  • Pubic lice– also called crabs, these lice live on the skin and hair around the pubic area

What Does A Head Louse Look Like?

The head louse is a tiny, wingless insect with claws perfectly suited for grasping onto hair and threads. During its lifetime, a head louse goes through three stages:

The egg (also called the nit)– often found near the scalp

The nymph– an immature louse less than 9 days old

 

The adult– adult head lice grow to be about 2-3mm long.

How Common Are Head Lice?

Head lice are a global problem found commonly in schoolchildren ages 3 to 11 and their household members. The CDC estimates 6 to 12 million infestations occur in the United States each year.

How Are Head Lice Spread?

Head lice are most commonly transmitted by close personal contact (such as head-to-head contact) or by sharing belongings like brushes, clothing and towels. Because lice don’t have wings, they cannot jump or fly. Instead, they use their claws to latch onto individual hairs or threads of clothing and crawl from host to host. 

Can Pets Transmit Head Lice?

No, household pets like dogs and cats do not spread human head lice. 

What Is The Lifespan Of A Head Louse?

A head louse can live about 30 days feeding on a human scalp. However, without sustenance (human blood), it will die within one to two days. 

I Think My Child Has Lice. What Should I Do?

Call us immediately! Unlike the common cold, lice won’t go away by themselves. If untreated, these highly contagious parasites will grow in number, as each female louse continues to lay about 6 eggs per day. 

Can I Remove My Child’s Lice Myself? 

Yes, and no. While your local pharmacy most likely carries a variety of lice-removal kits, properly removing all nits and lice can be tedious at best. At worst, the feat can be practically impossible if you don’t know the correct method of removal. 

I Used an Over-The-Counter Head Lice Removal Kit, but Now the Lice Have Returned in Full Force.

Lice removal takes time and patience; there’s really no cutting corners. If you’re like many of our clients who found us after unsuccessfully attempting to eradicate lice on their own, we suspect we know your fatal error– You got rid of every last adult louse but missed a few nits (louse eggs). If that’s the case, we have some good news and some bad news for you: Bad news? You’ve likely created a colony of “super lice.” As eggs, they were exposed to toxic chemicals, but they still didn’t die. [Eek!] Here’s the good news: You found us. Just say the word, and our highly trained technicians will rid you of even the Hulk-iest of lice.  

Will My Neighbors Know My Family Has Lice?

Unless you tell them, your neighbors won’t suspect a thing. Lice Care Solutions takes care to ensure the privacy of our clients by dispatching our technicians in unmarked, inconspicuous vehicles.

 

Is Lice Care Solutions Hipaa Compliant?

Yes!

 

Is Lice Removal Treatment Safe? 

Ours is. At Lice Care Solutions, we use an all-natural, nontoxic solution along with a highly specialized combing method to eradicate all head lice and their nits. 

What Goes into Your Special Lice Removal Solution? 

Unfortunately, this one we can’t answer. It’s a trade secret! But we’ll give you a hint– it has an olive oil base.
