Facts Of Lice

  • Head lice are tiny, wingless insects that live on the human scalp.
  • Head lice cannot hop, jump or fly…they can ONLY crawl…fast.
  • Head lice are primarily spread from head to head contact.
  • Nits (lice eggs) are laid in the hair shaft and attach themselves securely to the hair at an angle.
  • Nits are tiny, sesame seed shaped eggs that usually appear white in color. Lice are the live bugs and are difficult to spot on most heads.
  • Pets do not get or transmit head lice.
  • Lice can survive for a maximum of 24 hours off the scalp.
  • Chemicals are not required to remove lice and nit infestations. In fact, several recent studies report increasing resistance to commonly used pesticide treatment products. 
  • If all lice and nits are not removed from the head it is likely that your child will become re-infested.

What's New

Summer camp is a right of passage, and although lice checks often happen at the beginning of a session, we often see an uptick of cases when summer comes to a close. 

It is a good idea to get a head check done prior to the start of school.

Not sure exactly what to look for? call for an end-of-summer appointment!
