How Do I See Lice and Nits (Eggs) on the Head?
We receive a number of calls from Columbus area parents asking us this question. Lice and nits can be challenging to spot on the head, particularly to the untrained eye. Lice are the bugs and they tend to scoot away from the light. This means that as soon as you start to move the hair around to find them, these bugs will move away from you very quickly. Bugs vary in size from tiny (newborns are called nymphs) to about the size of a sesame seed. They are brown, have six legs, and are wingless.
Nits are the eggs laid by the lice. You cannot have eggs in your hair without having had a louse there to lay them. The louse may have moved out of your head and onto someone else’s and that is why you may find eggs but no sign of the bug(s).
Nits also range in size from tiny to about the size of sesame seed. Over the 10 days or so that it takes the nit to mature, it grows in size. Nits have a translucent shell which houses and protects the baby bug that is growing inside. They are glued to the hair shaft close to the head. They may have a whitish look in the hair but when removed, they are brown. Nits camouflage in the hair, which adds to the difficulty of identifying them.
Often we see families who have tried in vain to eradicate lice and nits. That is because if you leave a couple of nits behind and untreated, they will hatch and the cycle will perpetuate. Since nothing penetrates the shell of then nit, it is imperative to have an effective plan for removal. LiceDoctors technicians have a very long history of helping families with this challenging task.
Lice Treatment Testimonials From Our Clients
“Overall I LiceDoctors give an A+! My kids are in high school and were studying for exams when they both started scratching their heads. Panic ensued as they literally don’t have a minute to spare because their classes are so intense. I called our family doctor who said the quickest and most reliable way of getting rid of head lice is to call LiceDoctors. I’m so glad we did! You helped to make our lives manageable and we have not seen any more lice or nits. Thank you.” – Pat M. in Dublin, Ohio
“I can’t believe our lice removal session turned into a party but that’s exactly what happened. Just a note to show our appreciation to LiceDoctors for coming and treating my daughter and her four best friends for head lice. It’s not that I wish head lice on anyone however you made it as easy and fun as possible and my daughter and her friends ended up giggling throughout the session. Best of all you got rid of it in all of the kids and nobody has gotten it back.” – Janet H. from Columbus, Ohio
“We had given up hope that our daughters’ cases of head lice would ever go away. After weeks of treatments, the lice kept returning, so we finally decided to go online to see what kind of help we could find. One site stood out in my search- LiceDoctors. When your site came up, we called and spoke to Natasha who was lovely and knowledgeable.
You offered confidential, in home treatment with no more of the harsh chemicals that had not been working. In less than 3 hours, a technician was in our house, working on our daughter. She also checked my son, my wife and me. It was a good thing because it turned out that my wife had it too! Anyway, the lice problem was under control for good. Why didn’t we call LiceDoctors sooner?” – Charles J.in Eastmoor, OH
“Thank you again for your expertise and kindness when treating our family in our home. It was such a pleasure to have you here; you turned a bad situation into a good one and for that I am very grateful. I had been traumatized because the last time we had an infestation, it took months to get rid of it. You got us straightened out right away; the experience was night and day compared to trying to solve the problem on our home. Thank you for the many ways you contributed to peace in our home.” – Sai P. in Columbus, Ohio
“My son had a final exam which he was able to study for in the quiet of his room until it was his turn to be checked. Meanwhile, my two youngest ran around the house and I didn’t worry that they would be a bother to other families.Your in-home service made infinite sense to us and you did a fantastic job of eliminating the lice. Thanks again!” – Naomi W. in Columbus, OhioContact A Lice Professional Now!
