Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
“My husband thinks I overreact to everything. In this case he was the one who went nuts. He’s a total clean freak and he thought my 3 kids got lice because their hair was dirty. I set up an appointment with LiceDoctors for the same day. Boy, did he get an education; turns out lice like clean hair. Now he’s the big expert. Jennifer did a great job and it took her much shorter than I expected. We were all very grateful for the service.”
Peggy M. from East Brunswick, NJ
“My daughter goes to gymnastics and half the girls on the tumbling team came down with lice. Five 11 year olds with lice! The school would not let them back in until they were clear. This is a competitive sport and my daughter could not afford to be sidelined for days. One of the parents learned about LiceDoctors and we all used their lice picking services. The kids are all back in action thanks to the excellent services of LiceDoctors.”
Mia W. in Woodbridge, New Jersey
“We had had head lice so many times over the past few years that I was starting to think my kids had lice magnets in their hair. We finally were referred to LiceDoctors by the school principal and since they treated us we have found no lice or nits. It’s a miracle!”
Jordan S. in Princeton, NJ
“My daughter’s preschool has been battling head lice since the first day of school. As soon as one child was cleared two more showed up with it. The parents finally rebelled and we got the school to bring in the LiceDoctors. What an excellent move. The two technicians who came identified the remaining cases and then went to the families’ homes and cleared up the other family members. They also educated parents and we know that if a child has lice chances are other family members have it as well and they need to be checked and treated. Well it has been one month since they came and surprise no more head lice! You have an entire preschool parents who are your big fans. Thank you, LiceDoctors!”
Keisha J. in Trenton, New Jersey
“We had lice in our family a few years ago and it was a total nightmare. It was one of the worst experiences our family had been through. We could not go through that again so when my kids got lice again, I called our pediatrician. She recommended LiceDoctors and Donna came and her professional demeanor calmed us immediately. She got us all cleared up and my kids were finally admitted to school after being barred for several days (as I said, it was a nightmare!). If we ever have lice again, I will not waste a minute. Now, I have LiceDoctors in my speed dial. You are the best!”

Life Cycle Of Lice: How Long Does It Take for Lice Eggs to Hatch?
A Middlesex County mom, Lisa G., called LiceDoctors a couple of weeks ago to say that she and her kids had been exposed to head lice and she was pretty sure that they now had nits (eggs) in their hair. She wanted to know at what point should she expect those nits to hatch.
The question is a good one; as soon as the first round of nits (lice eggs) hatches, you have a second generation of lice. Each louse lays 6 to 10 eggs a day before it dies 30 days later. Once that happens you can see how the initial louse has multiplied and eventually has yielded hundreds of lice.
We explained to Lisa that it takes 8-12 days for nits to develop and hatch. To have nits, you have to have had a bug in
the hair; you can’t catch nits. While it typically takes about 1 week to 10 days for eggs to hatch, the first few days after a nit is laid it is too small to be seen.The point is that when you see nits in the hair, they have already been there for days and could hatch at any point. While the LiceDoctors treatment plans work no matter how many bugs or nits are in the hair, it is obviously better to find a case early.
From Louse To Nit
Once a nit hatches, a baby bug or nymph comes out. That nymph takes about a week to 10 days to mature into a louse that is mature enough to lay eggs. During that time, scientists measure it 3 times as it grows noticeably bigger. A louse can lay 180-300 eggs before it dies.
The life cycle of lice continues until all of the bugs and nits are removed from the hair. If you leave nits in the hair they will hatch and the case will continue to get worse. Lice cases do not go away by themselves. You will likely start to itch again.
If you have been exposed to head lice, it is never too early to be checked. If you have contracted lice, chances are there is still a bug and there may be nits, as well, in your hair. If your lice technician finds head lice, she will remove the bug(s) and nits before your case gets worse. We are just a phone call away at 609-722-7143.
