HEAD LICE FAQ
How do I clean my home to rid head lice?
Homes don't get head lice – people do. Head lice are human parasites and require human blood to survive. Vacuuming is the best way to remove lice or fallen hairs with attached nits from upholstered furniture, rugs, stuffed animals or car seats. Pesticidal sprays are not necessary . You can also place combs, brushes and hair bows in a zip lock bag and place them in the freezer for 24 hours. Wash bed linens in hot water and dry on highest heat setting for 30 mins.
Do I need to bag all stuffed and related items?
Experts use to suggest bagging items such as stuffed animals for a number of weeks to help bring infestations under control. Since lice cannot survive without human blood, this is unnecessary.
How are head lice spread?
Head lice are spread by head to head contact or sharing personal belongings. Head Lice do not jump or fly.
Do head lice transmit disease?
While many have thought head lice to be only a nuisance, recent scientific study refutes this notion. DNA technology shows head lice to be the same species as the notorious body louse which has long been associated with diseases such as typhus and relapsing fever. The potential for disease transmission via the head louse should not be underestimated.
Do pets get head lice?
What does a nit or egg look like?
Nits look like tiny yellow, tan, or brown oval shaped dots before they hatch. After hatching, the remaining shell looks white or clear. Lice lay nits on hair shafts close to the scalp, where the temperature is perfect for keeping warm until they hatch. Nits can look like dandruff, only they can't be removed by brushing or shaking them off.
Can head lice move to other parts of the body?
No, head lice can only live on the human head.
