Head Lice Q&A
What are head lice?
Head lice (Pediculus Humanus Capitis) are parasitic insects that live on the hair and scalp human heads and feed on human blood.
What do lice look like?
An adult louse is 2-3 mm in length and appears brown in color. They are wingless insects with six legs and a large abdomen. Lice eggs, also called "nits", are about 1 mm in length and also appear brown in color. Eggs that have hatched are white or clear and are called "nit castings". When the bug hatches from the egg, the egg is still glued to the hair shaft.
How do you get rid of head lice?
To get rid of head lice you must remove all stages of the lice infestation which include the nits, nyphys, and adult bugs. You must also clean your surroundings and confirm that all those in close contact are not infested. The most effective way to remove lice is with a natural nit repellent cream and a high quality lice comb and mechanically removing the infestation. Many physicians agree that lice are becoming resistant to the pesticides in most of the over the counter treatments. See our lice removal kit
