From Champaign to Peoria, from Springfield to Normal, from Decatur to Galesburg, Central Illinois has its fill of head lice. You may have tried to eliminate head lice on your own and if so you know that the lice are resistant to the chemical treatments. In fact, a major study recently conducted by researchers at Southern Illinois University showed that head lice in 25 out of 30 states, including Illinois, are now immune to chemical lice products.
What’s a family to do? Even if you are a do-it-yourself type, head lice have become very challenging to eradicate unless you have a lot of experience. Because the chemicals generally do not work, it is increasingly important to find a way to kill the bugs and to extract ALL of the nits (eggs)from the hair. Without experience, it is difficult to be able identify, find, and remove all of the lice and nits as they are tiny and camouflage in the hair.

Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
From the Minute Our Tech Arrived Everything Went Like Clockwork
“We called LiceDoctors last month and they had someone at my house within a few hours. I asked many questions on our initial phone call so that I was very prepared for what would ensue when they got to my home. From the minute our tech arrived, everything went like clockwork. She was on time, very kind to us and the kids. She was meticulous and thorough, yet she was very mindful of the time and let me know the things I could do to save time and money. We are extremely happy with her service. She educated us and showed us how important knowledge and expertise are in getting rid of lice. It’s been five weeks and no recurrence!” – Carol P. in Decatur, Illinois
LiceDoctors Came to the Rescue!
“Although I hope we never get lice again, if it does happen, I’ll definitely be calling Lice Doctors right away. When I found out that we had lice I about died. LiceDoctors came to my rescue when the school nurse called and said my daughter had lice. I had no idea what to do to treat lice. All I knew was what NOT to do and that was waste money on those chemical lice shampoos that everyone had told me do not work. I called at 8 am, and LiceDoctors sent Sara to me at 10 am. She was very efficient and professional, and had our family free of those lice critters in under 3 hours. I very much recommend her and LiceDoctors.” – Anne S. in Champaign, Illinois
Mistakenly Thought Clean Hair Would Not Get Lice
“Having head lice was a very humbling experience. I assumed that as long as I was on top of my kids and their hair and kept them clean, we would not have to deal with this problem. WRONG! My kids were loaded with them by the time that I realized what was going on. I’m not proud of that but it is a fact and as I said, I am vigilant. My pediatrician told me not to fool around but rather to call LiceDoctors immediately. He said that I would thank him. Well he was right! Having this treatment done in your own home makes it so much more comfortable for the kids and for you. She showed us what to do to prevent lice and to ensure that this case doesn’t come back again. As a bonus, our our hair looks very silky and shiny after two weeks of treatment and no bugs are in sight! Thank you, LiceDoctors!” – Donna R. in Peoria, Illinois
Don’t Waste Money on Stuff that Doesn’t Work—Just Call LiceDoctors!
“LiceDoctors made this most unpleasant experience into something not at all unpleasant. In fact, once our lovely and knowledgeable technician, Jessica, arrived all went very well. From the minute she laid out her instruments of lice destruction, while explaining what she was going to do, you could feel the family’s collective tension drifting away. Jessica worked diligently without a break, all the while teaching us and assuring us that the protocol that she uses works every time. I guess it does because it sure worked for us (which is more than I can say for the other 4 treatment strategies that I used). Can’t say enough good things about her. I have recommended LiceDoctors to several friends and they have all thanked me. If you have lice, don’t waste your time and money on stuff that does not work…just call LiceDoctors. You will want to thank me too!” – Barbara H. in Normal, Illinois
Trained Nurse Thanks LiceDoctors
“I am a trained nurse but could not get rid of the lice in my sons’ hair. I am patient and diligent but I was no match for these parasites. After trying and failing, I asked around my nurse network and the name that kept coming up was LiceDoctors. I am happy to report that they were terrific and were successful in eliminating the lice. I was so impressed that I am considering applying for a job with them! What a great concept and the price was right. I am now praising them to all of my nurse friends.” – Shawna F. in Bloomington, Illinois
What does hair look like post treatment?
This question came to us at LiceDoctors from Carrie, a mom in Peoria, Illinois. This was a very important question from her two teenage daughters. The older one, 17 years old, had a prom to attend and the younger one…well she was a typical teenager who was concerned with her appearance. While they desperately wanted the lice and nits (eggs) removed from their hair, they did not want to end up looking like a dish mop when complete.
We were pleased to be able to assure Carrie that her girls’ hair would not only be lice-free but would look better after the treatment than before. The reason for that is that our technicians use oil as part of the process. There are good reasons that certain oils have been used as a conditioner and shine enhancer for thousands of years in Italy and Greece; they leave the hair very silky with a nice non-greasy shine.
While it is important to suffocate the bugs, oil does not penetrate the shell of the egg (nothing does); oil does loosen the eggs (nits) which allows your technician to comb through the hair to pull out the nits. While combing helps to pull out nits, it is also important to handpick remaining ones. Handpicking (aka nitpicking) requires expertise to identify and find the small, camouflaged nits. LiceDoctors technicians are experts at extracting all lice and nits from the hair.
Upon removal of the lice and visible nits, we show our clients how their hair looks. Teenage girls, in particular, are thrilled with the results. Not only are they no longer lice-infested and contagious, they are free to return to their social lives and their hair looks great! If you have head lice in Central Illinois, give LiceDoctors a call at 309-431-2545. We will be at your home at your convenience (in an unmarked car) to eradicate the head lice in your family. We answer the phone from 6 am until midnight every day including weekends and holidays.
