Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
LiceDoctors Technician Is Kind and Methodical
“One never wants to phone a place like this however I’m so glad it exists. Head lice spread around my kids’ school and my kids fell victim to it. I found LiceDoctors online and they are national and even on Thanksgiving day they had a tech sent out to us immediately. She was terrific and so reassuring that the minute she walked in I felt that we had found the Mary Poppins of the lice world. She was methodical in removing the nits and so kind to my children. We are very grateful to LiceDoctors!” – Carly G.in Branson, Missouri
LiceDoctors Knows Their Stuff
“I felt sick to my stomach when the nurse called to tell me that I had to pick up my son from school. He had head lice! He could not get back into school until all of the nits were gone and I had heard from friends that it is a nightmare to get all of the nits out. My friend had had a positive experience with you all at LiceDoctors so I called you. Your lovely lice woman, Kim, came out and treated and combed my son and found lice in me as well. She told us how to proceed and even educated us on lice and what to do and not do in the house. Within 2 hours she had finished and I felt far less apprehensive about the lice and how to handle it going forward. LiceDoctors knows their stuff and I am so relieved that I called you. Bottom line, schools do not know lice and these guys have been doing this for over 20 years and know it inside and out! Thank you, LiceDoctors!” – Mari H. in Marshfield, Missouri
LiceDoctors True Professionals
“LiceDoctors is a really wonderful service and they saved us. They are true professionals. Not only do they know how to get the lice and eggs out of the hair, but they also educate you as to what they are doing as they work so that you know how to deal with lice if you are unlucky enough to have them in your family in the future. Also, I did a price comparison and LiceDoctors pricing is way more reasonable than the per head pricing. Thank you to LiceDoctors.” – Lashonna W. In Springfield, MO.
Even Our Dog Loves LiceDoctors!
Our family had a very positive experience with LiceDoctors and our tech, Lori. Everyone loved her- even the dog who is cranky and doesn’t like anyone! I was very impressed at how quickly help arrived. And then, Lori knew exactly what to do, both for the lice and to get me calmed down. She has been treating lice for years and assured us that she would put an end to this problem. Four weeks later and we are still lice-free. LiceDoctors is a brilliant concept.” – Ken L.in Joplin, Missouri
Highly Recommends LiceDoctors
“My wife had become so frustrated after a few months of tying to get our daughters clear of lice that I asked some people at work for suggestions. One woman said she used Lice Doctors last year, so we called them. They were able to come that day, and, basically, they took over and got the lice cleared up quickly and finally. What a relief! We recommend them highly.” – Paul F. in Jasper, MO
Do Chemical Lice Shampoos Work?
Unfortunately, they often do not. “The days of being able to wash with some pesticide-infused shampoo are gone.”, states Sara Zukoff, assistant professor of entomology at Kansas State University in an article in the Wichita Eagle written by Gabrielle Dunn. Professor Zukoff lays the blame for this on the growing resistance of lice to the chemical treatments. She likens this trend to that of growing resistance to antibiotics due to overuse. According to the article, Zukoff reports that “a small segment of insects carry resistance to the pesticides. When those pesticides are used over and over, the pesticides kill the bugs not resistant and the ones with resistance slowly become more common.”
We at LiceDoctors endorse this assertion. We have been out in the field, treating families in their homes for over 20 years. We have first-hand experience seeing live lice crawling on the head after lice pesticides were used. Parents are often perplexed and horrified to discover that the chemicals did not kill the bugs.
A recent study showed that lice across the country are now resistant to chemical lice products. The study at Southern Illinois University found mutated head lice in 25 of 30 states studied, including Missouri. In a report by the American Chemical Society in August, 2015, the author of the studied reported, “We are the first group to collect lice samples from a large number of populations across the U.S.,” says Kyong Yoon, Ph.D. “What we found was that 104 out of the 109 lice populations we tested had high levels of gene mutations, which have been linked to resistance to pyrethroids.”
This growing resistance to the chemicals is one of the major reasons for the increase in the incidence of head lice. People use the chemicals, then assuming that their kids are lice-free, they send them into the world still contagious. Ultimately, these unknowingly infested kids pass along lice to others.
At LiceDoctors, your technician apply product to suffocate the bugs and loosen their eggs (nits). She will comb through the hair with a professional grade comb handpick the nits from the hair. This task is best done by a trained professional who can identify and find the nits that camouflage in the hair. It is required that all nits be removed from the hair so that they are not left to hatch and leave new bugs. We never use chemicals.
