Itchy Mom Finds Louse in Anti-itch Cream
“I went to the dermatologist last week with bites on the back of my neck. The doctor gave me a steroid cream. After I finished rubbing the cream onto my neck I noticed there was a bug stuck to my hand in the cream. How disgusting is that? I went on the Internet and I saw that it was a louse. Immediately I looked in my kids’ hair and they had bugs too. I had kept one of LiceDoctors fliers that the school had given out so I called them and they came over within the hour. Jackie was wonderful. She had been working for the company for a few years and knew exactly what she was doing. We are relieved we are now lice-free!”

Six Weeks Post-Treatment and Still No Lice in Sight
“I just want to say that LiceDoctors is a great company. I never comment about anything but I have to give them kudos. Marybeth, our LiceDoctor showed up at my house on time and did her job very thoroughly and explained to me just what she was doing. She certainly knows her stuff. It has been 6 weeks and still no lice or nits in sight. I’m glad we’re finally done with this nightmare. Thinking about it just makes me an itch!”

LiceDoctors: First Company Mom Would Call in the Future
“Thank y’all so much LiceDoctors. Your friendly and professional technician came out to our house just a few hours after we called. Cleaned all 5 of us up in 2 hours. Provided tremendous relief! Used no chemicals. As much as I would not want to see y’all again because it would mean Lice again, if it ever happened, y’all would be the first I would call!

Tech is a Blessing and Price is Fair
“Marie was such a blessing to us. She is calm, knowledgeable, and kind and put our anxious family at ease. She gave us excellent follow up directions and told us to call her with any further questions. My wife did have a question for her and called Marie at night and Marie cheerfully answered the question. You have quite an asset with her and we are very appreciative and impressed with the way that your company took care of us. By the way, the price was very fair. Thank you.”

How Contagious is Head Lice?
We’d love to say, “Ahhh don’t worry about it, those critters aren’t all that contagious!” Alas, that would not be true. Lice have been around for thousands of years and they have managed to last by moving from head to head. If you put a child with lice near another child, chances are fairly good that at least one bug from the infested child will move on to the other child’s head. This is especially true if the infested child’s head is crowded with lice and the lice are looking for a fresh head with more room.
The reality is that about 95% of head lice are transferred through head to head contact. Lice need the temperature of a person’s head plus human blood to thrive. Each louse feeds on blood 3 times daily. Lice have no incentive to leave the head and hang around on a chair or shirt where it is cold and there is no food. When another available, presumably less crowded, head of hair shows up and is within reach of head 1, lice from head 1 happily travel to the new head. Why not? A non-infested head means less competition for a feeding spot for the newly arrived lice.
Once a couple of live bugs arrive on the new head, it is feeding and breeding time. The bugs eat 3 times a day and lay eggs (nits) at a rate of 6-10 eggs daily. The mature lice die after about 30 days and leave a legacy behind in the form of hundreds of nits. As these eggs mature and hatch, you can see how easily head 2 gets crowded and the lice will be ready to move to heads 3, 4, 5, and 6. And so the cycle continues. Remember whether you are in Baton Rouge or Bogalusa, New Orleans or Napoleonville, or anywhere in Louisiana, head lice are contagious critters. If you contract a case, it will most likely be from direct head to head contact and not from a brush, hat, chair, or any other object.
