For the Louse, It’s the head, not the house.
At LiceDoctors, we are often asked by people with head lice what they should do with their homes. Our answer is always the same: you can take a lint brush and wipe the couches and you can wash the sheets but you do not need to go crazy cleaning everything in site and bagging stuffed animals for 2 weeks.
Head Lice Live off the Head for just 1 to 2 Days
First of all, bugs can only live off of the head for 1 to 2 days. Lice feed 3 times a day on the blood in the human scalp; without that blood, the lice die. Secondly, all people with lice whom we treat will do a follow up protocol which will protect them from getting lice back in their hair. Learn more facts about lice now.
Why Use a Phoenix Head Lice Treatment Service?
There is an increasing resistance among lice to the chemical shampoos/pesticides, which makes head lice removal more difficult. Some of the more effective chemicals have been removed from the pesticides due to their harmful side effects. Lice mutate to adapt to chemicals thereby rendering the shampoos ineffective and lice resistant. Today’s lice are so hearty/resistant as to be dubbed “super lice”.
Phoenix Lice Removal Services Get the Job Done
The vast majority of people with head lice whom LiceDoctors treats have been treated unsuccessfully with pesticide shampoos. Unfortunately, after treatment, some parents believe their children to be lice-free (understandably since the directions suggest that) and send the kids back to school while still contagious. The problem is that the super lice resistance is preventing the treatment from fully working. If 2 nits are left in the head, the cycle will start all over again.
LiceDoctors Phoenix lice removal service not only eliminates head lice, we also provide emotional support during a trying time by demystifying the process and showing people with head lice that the problem is very treatable.
Ode To A Phoenix Lice Picker
Here’s the dedication of our lice technician in Phoenix: she was in the emergency room of the hospital when she got a call from us. Despite being in the middle of her own trauma, she grabbed her cell phone and called the family in need. She said “the little girls needed me so I told them what to do to hold them over until I could get there the next morning.”
We realize that head lice are not a life and death matter. We also realize, however, that there is fear and frustration associated with contracting a case of head lice especially when you’ve been unable to eradicate it. That’s why we at LiceDoctors, take our jobs seriously… very seriously. We know that when you call us you want us there at your earliest convenience. In Phoenix, head lice are certainly a year-round phenomenon, especially given the beautiful weather that we’ve been having. Lice love the warm Phoenix weather and they love it when kids are playing outside, especially when kids play on top of each other giving the lice easy access to a friend’s head.
