We don’t just eradicate lice, we also want to educate you on what head lice are, facts and myths about head lice, as well as symptoms of a lice infestation. Head lice are tiny insects that live on the scalp. They can be spread by close contact with other people. Head lice only live in hair and occasionally eyebrows and eyelashes.
An egg, called “nit” is glued to the hair shaft where it stays for 8 to 10 days.
The baby, called “nymph” hatches and molts three times over a period of 10 days, growing into an adult.
10 days after hatching, the adult begins to reproduce and will lay anywhere from 50 to 300 eggs over the next 28 days.
