With lice and nit removal, experience leads to expertise. LiceDoctors has treated over 250,000 children and adults over the past several years.

Treatment Is Effective and All-Natural
An experience lice professional will come to you and treat you with a safe, step-by-step plan that is chemical-free and is guaranteed to be effective. After this has been completed, the technician will go over a simple follow-up plan with you and educate you on how to protect yourself against future lice infestations. We are so confident that your treatment will be effective that we back it up with a full guarantee.
Our track record speaks for itself. We are recommended by pediatricians, dermatologists, school nurses, private and preschool administrators, and of course our many former clients. LiceDoctors also has an “A” rating with the Better Business Bureau.
Take Advantage of the Convenience and Privacy
Do you really want to schlep your kids into the car and drive them to a clinic or salon? LiceDoctors makes it as easy as possible for you and your family to be treated by coming to you…just like the old fashion house calls that doctors used to make. Our goal is to to make your lice treatment experience as stress-free as possible (we know that you have already endured enough stress just knowing that you have lice). Your technician will arrive in an unmarked car, at the time you designate, with the tools and know-how to get the job done. No wasted time for you, absolute privacy, less hassle, and the most flexibility…when each child has been checked and treated, he or she can immediately return to normal schedule.
Last but Not Least…Our Pricing is Affordable
Our average price is about $300 for a family of 3 or 4 (dads don’t take very long ). Variables are length and thickness of the hair, severity of infestation, and number of people. We only need to come one time and our technicians are efficient and thorough.
For further information or to make an appointment in the Boston, Western Massachusetts, and Worcester areas (including southern New Hampshire), call LiceDoctors today. We accept Flex Spending and our treatment is covered under some insurance policies. We will help you today!

LiceDoctors to the Rescue
It had just started to snow when I discovered lice in my daughter’s head. I was panicky but there was no way I was leaving my home. I went online to try my luck with a lice treatment service. Well, I hit the jackpot with LiceDoctors! Karen arrived at my home an hour after my call. She was so nice and had a way about her that got me to relax as soon as she arrived. More important, she answered every question I had and got all of the lice and eggs our of my daughter’s hair. She gave me tips on what helps to prevent a recurrence and what is a waste of time. The overall experience was positive and I give LiceDoctors and Karen an A plus (I’m a teacher!).” Ann L. in Great Barrington, Massachusetts
Arrives in Under 2 Hours
“Noreen is a godsend! My family was infested and she showed up to my house in less then two hours-she was efficient, kind and professional. Thanks for your help to fix this problem.” Karen L. in Cambridge, MA, Yelp, 5 stars
LiceDoctors Knows their Stuff
“Never feel like calling a place like this however glad a place like this exists. A serious case of lice occurred in my kids daycare and my kids fell victim to it. Looked this place up online and they are national and even the day before Thanksgiving they were ready to go and sent a person out within 1 hour of calling. The nice woman came out and treated and combed every one of us out and let us know how to proceed and even educated us on lice and how to treat the house etc. Within 2 hours we were finished and had a less apprehensive feeling about the nasty epidemic and how to handle it going forward. These guys know their stuff and even proved some theories wrong the Pediatrician recommended. Bottom line, schools and day cares do not know lice and these guys have been doing this for over 20 years and know it upside down! This was worth every penny!” Matt L. in Boston, MA., Yelp, 5 stars
OTC Products Fail to Get Rid of the Lice
“My middle child, age 10, was recently sent home from school with head lice. I was a wreck and didn’t know what to do. I called my pediatrician who just said to buy some over-the-counter product. I bought Rid. Two weeks later she was sent home again. This time I bought Nix. I had no idea what to look for. It was a month and nothing got the job done. I called LiceDoctors and Noreen “came to the rescue!.” She calmed us all down; treated the whole family and guaranteed we would be lice free. We are and have been. Money well spent. I wish I had a professional come out at the beginning.” Helen D. In Salem, MA.
All Natural Treatment and Completely Safe
“With four kids and a full-time job, the last thing I had time to do was sit and pull bugs out of my kids heads. I had read enough about the chemicals to know that they do not work plus I hate putting toxic things near my children. I love that your treatment process was all natural, completely safe, and that it worked as promised. Your lovely lice professional was delightful and taught me a lot. Thank you for helping us.” Katya H.in Worcester, MA.
Cost Less than Anywhere Else and Service Worth Every Penny
“When my daughter came home and I suspected she had lice I went into panic mode. I can handle sick kids, bleeding kids but not kids with bugs in their hair! When I called I was told they could have someone at my house within an hour and a half. Freaking out I called a few other places only to learn they were closed and cost way more money! When I called back they assured me again a technician would be able to be at my home. The technician called me. Educated me about lice and put my mind at ease. We agreed (because my children are so young and were exhausted) that she would come in the morning. The technician was kind, gentle and patient. She checked the entire family and treated us for less than it would have cost if I went anywhere else and just had my daughter treated. The technician put my mind at ease, educated me about lice, and gave me the knowledge and tools to treat head lice safely, naturally and efficiently if we were to ever have an issue again. My husband said it was worth every penny! I agree! Karen D. Lexington, MA, Google Plus, 5 stars
Thankful Mom and Daughter
“When my daughter started scratching her head I wondered if she had lice. So I looked. As a matter of fact, I looked three times. I thought all I was seeing what dandruff. I was wrong! LiceDoctors told me she had one of the worst cases they had seen with over 1,000 live bugs. How disgusting was that?! One trip, lots of work going through her mass of hair and my daughter on the way to being lice free. We had to continue to comb her hair but the worst part was over. Thank goodness for LiceDoctors. I highly recommend their services. Fast, efficient and responsive to a mother who clearly hadn’t a clue!” Julie S. in Newton, MA, Google Plus, 5 stars
Super Lice or Why Over the Counter Lice Shampoos Are Not Effective in Treating Lice
We get calls every day from Massachusetts’ parents who tell us that they have tried drugstore shampoos and even prescriptions from the doctor and that those products are not working to get rid of the lice. “Do we have super lice?” a Boston mom asked. “Why is nothing effective in killing the lice or eggs? I see live bugs in the head after I apply the treatment shampoo. What is going on?”
Resistance to the chemicals is what is going on. Head lice have been around for millions of years, before human beings. They have had to adapt many times over the years in order to be viable beings today. These morphed lice are called “super lice” due to their heartiness. The bugs have altered their chemistry so that the specific pesticides that were designed to kill them no longer do an effective job. It is said that it takes 3 years for lice to develop a resistance to a new chemical treatment so it would be very difficult to find a pesticide that you can count on to kill all of the lice.
Then there are the nits…those sticky little lice eggs that are secured to the strands of hair with a glue-like substance. Nits have a very rigid outer shell that protects the baby bug or nymph inside and does not allow pesticides to penetrate to kill the bug. The nymphs undergo several stages in their development process and during all stages they have the armor of the outer shell to protect them. If you have been applying the chemical shampoos, you know how frustrating this experience can be. Just when you think that you have this problem licked, there’s another bug scooting across the head or you see a few more nits stuck to the hair. It can feel like you are stuck in lice hell.
Unfortunately, when parents get frustrated, they may use the treatment chemicals over and over, which is never a good idea. We don’t know the long term effects of chemical treatments but why take a chance especially when the products often don’t work? What does work is using a systematic treatment protocol that involves combing with a high quality comb and handpicking all of the nits out of the hair. Keep in mind that when checking the head, you must be extremely attentive as the bugs run away from the light at a high speed and are hard to see. Nits camouflage so they can be challenging to find. Be sure to use bright light if attempting this on your own.
