“Had a desperate call from a friend whose children came home with the dreaded lice! she didn’t know what to do. I made some calls and found these folks. Very understanding, polite and knowledgeable. They contacted her right away and it turned a bad experience into a good one!!!” – Judy B. in Miami, Florida, Yelp, 5 stars
“My sons, ages 10 and 12, are both are in wrestling. Their coach called to say to look out for head lice, that a few of the boys had come down with it. I didn’t see anything at first, but after a week or so, it looked like the older one had it. We tried a shampoo, but that didn’t work, so I called LiceDoctors. Their technician came over the next morning. They both had it, and, much to my surprise, so did I. But, thanks to LiceDoctors, not for long.” Gerri B. in Miami Beach, Florida

Ten Facts of Lice (and Nits) You May Not Know
At LiceDoctors, we receive hundreds of calls a week from people who have a variety of questions about head lice. There is a lot of conflicting information on line which contributes to the confusion. Following is information based in empirical evidence derived from our 20 years in the field of head lice eradication.
- Chemical treatments are no longer effective in killing many strains of head lice. Head lice have mutated and become resistant to many common chemical lice shampoos and other pediculicides.
- No product penetrates the shell of a nit (lice egg).Head lice nits have a hard shell that protects the baby bug inside. Nothing is known to to be able to pierce the shell and kill the baby bug.
- It is all about the head, not the house, when trying to kill head lice. Head lice can only survive off of the head for one day. They need the blood and temperature of the human head to live. It is a waste of time to scrub down the house, do loads of laundry, and bag all of the toys. We repeat, you need to treat the head not the house.
- Nits are translucent, not white. Many people think that lice and nits are white. If you see white things in your hair, you are looking at dandruff, product residue, or hair casts.
- Nits have a little antenna coming out of the front. They are round on one side and pointy on the other. The antenna comes out of the pointy side of the nit.
- Nits are not contagious. The only way you can pick up a case of head lice is if a bug crawls into your hair. That bug will lay eggs at a rate of 6 to 10 a day and as these eggs hatch live bugs will come out and the cycle will continue. Nits cannot travel from one head to another.
- Hairbrushes and hats are usually not responsible for the spread of head lice. Head lice are almost always spread from direct head-to-head contact. Remember lice do not survive very long off of the head. They do not like to leave a head unless there is another one waiting.
- Head lice are not a new phenomenon. They have been around for over 5 million years. A head lice nit was discovered in a human about 10,000 years ago in 8,000 BC; the egg was found in the hair of a buried mummy in northeast Brazil. Following that discovery, in 7000 BC, head lice were discovered on a hair on a skull in Negev in Northern Israel. The cave was carbon-dated to 9,000 BC. Head lice mutate and their ability to adapt has contributed to their longevity.
- Head lice prefer clean hair to dirty hair. The old wives tale says that lice are associated with poor hygiene. In fact, the opposite is true. The cleaner the hair, the easier it is for a louse to adhere to a strand and climb up to the scalp to feed.
- Lice are not eradicated in a “one and done” treatment. The reason for this is that on any given day that a head is checked and treated, there may be microscopic nits that are too small to see. These are the eggs that were laid that day or the day before. Since you can not see them, you can not eradicate them (remember nothing penetrates the shell of the nit). You must wait until the nit is big enough and then you will be able to extract it during a follow-up protocol.
