Lice Treatment and Removal Testimonials
“Every time the school nurse sent home a note about a new lice outbreak in the school I knew that we would find some in at least one of our four kids. Well in this latest outbreak, all of them were found to have lice. We learned about LiceDoctors from the Internet, and, thanks to their quick response and thorough process, we finally were able to get rid of the lice once and for all.”
Teri G. in Paramus, New Jersey
“When my daughter came home from college with lice, she checked with her roommate who also had become infested. The roommate’s Mom had learned about LiceDoctors from a colleague at her office, and tried you herself. Well, she couldn’t recommend you strongly enough, so we gave you a call. To our surprise, you had just expanded to New Jersey. Your technician came to our house so quickly, put us at ease,and proceeded to get rid of the lice. So easy! And, with no anxiety.”
Amy H. in Fair Lawn, NJ
“Thanks, LiceDoctors, for getting us back to a calm feeling. It seemed like you came just minutes after my call, and you quickly made sure the lice were totally gone and that we knew how to keep them away. We are your biggest fans!”
Melissa J. in Hoboken, New Jersey
“We tried to treat our daughter when she had lice, but she screamed every time we tried to comb out the bugs and nits. We called LiceDoctors, and their technician soothed my daughter and calmly took care of the problem. My daughter liked Laura so much that she made her a thank you card when she left. Thanks for being our savior!”
Kenny L. in Jersey City, NJ
“It didn’t surprise me when I got the call from the nurse that Danny had lice. All of his friends have been battling it. Lucky for me, my friend told me NOT to waste money on commercial lice shampoos. She had gone that route and was unhappy and frustrated until her doctor referred her to LiceDoctors. Apparently “everyone” around here has had excellent service from you and we were no exception. The whole process was painless thanks to LiceDoctors!”
Keisha T. in Fort Lee, New Jersey
“Dear Wendy and Karen,
On behalf of our family, I send you our sincerest thanks for treating us and getting rid of our head lice and also for educating us and helping to alleviate the anxiety within my family. Since our kids are now teenagers, we thought we had dodged the bullet when it came to head lice. Alas, that was not the case, since both of my daughters ended up getting it, most likely from a party they attended and spent the night at. A few of the other girls also ended up with lice. My girls were so relieved that they didn’t have to go out in public to one of those lice salons as they were petrified that they would bump into somebody (which would not have been ‘cool’). Your service is the perfect blend of privacy, convenience, and most of all effectiveness in eliminating our head lice infestation. Thank you so much.”
Joanna W. in Mahwah, New Jersey
Frequently Asked Questions About Head Lice and Lice Treatment
We at LiceDoctors Head Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service get calls from parents and school staff asking us questions all about head lice. LiceDoctors addresses commonly asked lice treatment questions by parents.
Interviewer: Are lice dangerous and do they cause disease?
LD – No, lice can cause itching and a rash, but do not carry disease. Lice are more of a nuisance than a danger. Lice can not kill you, which is a question we have been asked.
Interviewer: Can you describe the appearance of lice?
LD – Adult lice are about the size of a sesame seed, have 6 legs, are wingless and have a browish tinge.
Interviewer: What do nits (lice eggs) look like?
LD – Nits are laid on the hair shaft, close to the scalp and stick to the hair shaft. They are oval in shape with a pointy front and an antenna coming out the pointy end. They look brown when placed against a white background and are encased in a hard, translucent shell.
Interviewer: How long does it take lice eggs to hatch?
LD – Lice eggs take 7-10 days to develop and hatch. They are not contagious; only live lice can be transferred o another person.
Interviewer: Will lice medication kill the bugs?
LD – The medication may kill some of the bugs but usually not all of them. There is an increasing resistance among lice to the drug store lice shampoos as well as to prescription chemical lice shampoos. In addition, some of the more effective chemicals have been taken out of the lice shampoos due to their potentially harmful effects. These highly resistant it’s are called “super lice”.
Interviewer: Will lice shampoos kill nits?
LD – The answer to that question is no and the reason for that is that lice eggs or nits have an impenetrable shell so lice medications do not pierce the shell to destroy the baby bug inside. Nits must be combed and handpicked from the hair.
Inteviewer: Does that apply to chlorine? Will chlorine kill lice or eggs?
LD – The answer is no for the same reasons as given above.
Interviewer: Are there home remedies that will kill lice?
LD – Olive oil is a very effective home remedy to kill lice. It is all natural and viscous so it suffocates the lice. To remove the nits, though, someone has to comb out nits and then pull out the remaining nits from the hair. There are no short cuts.If 2 nits are left in the hair, the case starts over again.
Interviewer: Why hire a professional service. Can’t I do this myself?
LD – A professional like LiceDoctors is trained and knows exactly what to look for in your hair. We come to your home and we guarantee results. Nits camouflage so you need to be trained to get all the nits out.
Interviewer – How do lice spread from person to person?
LD – Head to head contact is by far the most common way to transfer lice. Lice can be passed along through objects like caps, helmets, and hair brushes, but this is less common. Bugs only live off the hair for about a day and they don’t like to leave the head unless they have another head to go to.
Interviewer: What do I have to do to treat the house?
LD – At LiceDoctors we say, it’s the head not the house. Again, head lice will die when off the head for a day so you don’t have to disinfect the house in order to kill the lice. You don’t have to vacuum and bag everything. With head lice, the follow-up treatment on the head, not the home, is the answer. If a lice service tells you to fumigate your house, run for the hills!
Interviewer: What can you do to prevent lice?
LD – Children with long hair should wear it in a bun or braid and cover it with hair spray, gel, or mousse. This puts a protective coating over the hair which makes it harder for the lice to stick onto the hair shaft. Unless you put your child in a bubble, there is no way to absolutely prevent your child from getting lice, you can only make it more difficult for the lice to get into the hair.
Interviewer: What are symptoms of head lice?
LD – Some people have very itchy scalps as a result of head lice, another person may have several lice and be asymptomatic. Since head lice move quickly in the hair, they are harder to find then lice eggs. Use bright light and look for translucent eggs that are stuck to the hair shaft. If you see lice in the head and want a professional service with a full guarantee and a solid record of success, call LiceDoctors at 201-431-3913.
