Like most areas in the U.S. today, families in Sonoma and Napa encounter lice on a regular basis. An infestation of head lice is challenging and upsetting especially since many strains of lice are resistant to all chemicals. In order to put an end to a lice infestation, all nits (lice eggs) must be physically removed from the hair. Yes, that’s right, all nits. That is where LiceDoctors comes in. Our technicians are experts in lice and nit removal and we have a track record of successfully treating over 250,000 clients.
Technicians use chemical-free lice treatments that kill all strains of lice. They also remove all nits (lice eggs) which have an impenetrable shell and must be physically extracted. We are so confident that your treatment will work (a 20 year track record shows that) that we fully guarantee it.

Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
Recommends LiceDoctors to Everyone
“I was so upset when my friend called to tell me that both her daughter and mine were at her house scratching their heads. She thought that they had lice and suggested that we call LiceDoctors as another friend had used you with success. Your lovely tech was at my home within an hour and it turned out that my daughter and one of my other kids had it (but, at least I did not!). Two hours later she was gone, and we could rest easy again. I recommend Lice Doctors to everyone who has to deal with this unpleasant and, yes, creepy condition.” – Lilly A. in Healdsburg, California
LiceDoctors Helps Dad with his Twins
“The last thing I wanted to deal with when my wife was back east was to have a problem with my twins. This time it was a lice outbreak at their school, and my two had what the nurse told me was the school’s worst cases. Fortunately, she knew about LiceDoctors. One quick call and within hours their reassuring technician had the situation (and this dad) under control. That’s the best money I ever spent on my girls.” – Kyle D. in Sonoma, California
Why Didn’t I Call LiceDoctors Earlier?
“The babysitter said she’d seen lice before when all the girls in her sorority had them and that she was sure my three girls had a case. After a few minutes on line I had to agree- they had most of the symptoms. I bought the drugstore products and spent hours on their hair that week. I thought we had it behind us when, two weeks later, two of the three were scratching again. This time I did what the school nurse recommended. I called Lice Doctors. The woman came quickly, explained all the details, and after a few hours, all 5 of us had the lice in the rear view mirror. All I could think was: why didn’t I use Lice Doctors earlier?”- Jessica M. in Napa, California
Working Mom Grateful for LiceDoctors
“I leave for work at 8:00 in the morning and I’m back at 7 at night. There was no way I was gonna walk in the door and start picking nits out of my daughter’s hair. Your technician Heather was fantastic. She really knows how to terminate a case of head lice quickly. I watched her with amazement! Thank you. Thank you!” – Leslie T. In Santa Rosa, CA.
To Eradicate Lice, You Need to be Equipped with Knowledge and Tools of the Trade
“What can you do for us that we can’t do for ourselves?” is a question that we are occasionally asked by inquiring parents in the Napa and Sonoma areas.
It is important to know that there is an increasing resistance among lice to the chemical shampoos/pesticides, which makes head lice removal more difficult than ever. You may have heard the term “super lice”; these are lice that have become immune to lice pesticides and these bugs have been found across the country. In addition, some of the more efficacious chemicals have been removed from the pesticides due to their harmful side effects. Lice mutate to adapt to chemicals thereby rendering the shampoos ineffective and lice resistant.
Whether you are in Napa or Sonoma you may have tried to treat your children on your own. If so, you have likely encountered frustration in getting rid of the lice infestation, once and for all. Before you hire a lice treatment service, you need to be sure that they have the expertise to get rid of your family’s head lice infestation more effectively than you can do it yourself.
What to Look for When Hiring a Professional Service
First ensure that whatever lice professional whom you hire guarantees the treatment. At LiceDoctors, nearly everyone is cleared for school the next day. In the aftermath of our treatment, we are available to answer any questions you may have. After a simple at-home follow-up plan that we show you, if you do find a nit (very unlikely), we will come back at no charge and re-treat you.
Second, find out how many clients the lice service has treated. With head lice removal, experience matters. The more cases you have treated, the more able you are to find small bugs and nits (eggs) in the hair. LiceDoctors has a track record of successfully treating over 250,000 children and adults. A major reason for hiring a professional service is that they should be a lot better at finding and removing lice than an untrained person.
The lice treatment service should have safe and effective strategies to eliminate lice and their microscopic nits that are in the hair on the day of treatment. This is very important and is a big reason why many do-it-you itself lice treatments fail. If a couple of nits are left behind, and that is likely to happen with recently laid ones as those nits are too small to see with the naked eye, then you need to have a a follow-up plan to eradicate those nits. If you do not, then it is highly likely that your lice infestation will continue.
The presence of an expert should be comforting to you during a stressful time. Many people feel overwhelmed when they find lice in their hair or on a family member. LiceDoctors lice removal technicians not only eliminate head lice they also offer emotional support during a trying time by demystifying the process. Attempting to self-treat can feel like being alone on a hamster wheel. Make sure your technician arrives equipped with tools that work to eliminate the lice. LiceDoctors’ technicians carry the tools to get all of the lice out of the hair.
An experienced lice professional will teach you about head lice based on years of experience in the field. We assure you that there is a lot of contradictory, false information on the Internet. LiceDoctors technicians will educate you so that hopefully you will be prepared if you ever need to combat lice in the future.
In addition, a professional lice treatment company may very well be your most cost-effective (least expensive) option. LiceDoctors pricing is in the mid to lower range. For lice removal companies that charge by the hour, ask how long it typically takes them to treat a head. While some companies may quote a lower hourly rate, inexperienced technicians can take longer to treat a head. Of course, there are variables in play such as how long and thick the hair is and how severe the lice infestation is. Treatment companies that charge by the head are usually more expensive than LiceDoctors which charges by the hour. For families who attempt to self-treat, there are often wasted expenditures such as chemical shampoos that are not effective, visits to the doctor who is not going to take the time to remove the lice from the head, time and money wasted on unnecessary laundry, dry cleaning, and house cleaning bills, and, of course, the cost of missed days of school and work.
If you find lice in your family, do not waste time. Call LiceDoctors at 707-227-1370 day or night, 365 days a year, and we will be at your home at your convenience to treat you. Our treatment is fully guaranteed.
