Facts about Lice and Lice removal

Come school season, summer camps and your lil ones are scratching their head out. The culprit? Those tiny head lice. Most of you would think that lice infest the dirty heads, but in reality, lice don’t have such a benchmark, in fact all they want is a head to nourish and survive!

Sometimes even when you think you have done all the lice removal, there will be some eggs waiting to be hatched – most of them so minute and so close to the scalp that they are bound to be missed. Most of the time you will have to hire a Water Damage Long Island.

There are certain things you need to about Head lice:

Lice are very common and affect about one in three children at some time during the school year.

They are very hard to notice

Head lice doesn’t mean you have low hygiene

The average lifespan of a head louse is three weeks.

Female lice lay eggs every seven to ten days, leaving their shells (nits) glued to the hair. Often these nits do not become obvious until the hair has grown out and by this time the eggs would have hatched.

Itching is not a symptom because it’s caused by an allergy to head lice, and not everyone is allergic. For this reason, parents need to check their children’s hair regularly.

The best way for lice removal is to wash and condition the hair then, and comb the wet hair at every section with a very fine toothed ‘detection’ comb, with teeth spaced less than 0.3mm apart to trap the tiniest lice.

Don’t consider the counter products as substitute to thorough combing, no matter whatever claims the products make. They are not 100% effective although they can be a part of the lice removal procedure along with wet combining.

Also keep in mind that although lice affect mainly children, it doesn’t make adults immune to lice. Since parents are always staying close to their kids, there are great chances of them also ending up with lice infestation. If you need more information or need professional.
