Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
“Not only did we get 16 inches of snow on Sunday, I also realized that my kids had lice. Both girls were infested. Who was I going to get to come over on a Sunday? I tried everybody and the only company that even answered the phone was LiceDoctors. They made it over the next morning and got rid of the whole disgusting infestation. The technician had a four wheel drive and told me it wasn’t even a problem getting to my house. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are truly lifesavers.”

“I run the girls division of the summer camp and in recent years we have been confronting the problem of head lice each summer. Given that the girls sleep in bunks close to each other we know we have to nip this problem in the bud or we will have an entire camp saturated with head lice. Luckily we found LiceDoctors and now lice is no longer a headache for us. Your techs are masters of their craft and we rest easy lice-wise knowing we are in capable hands.”

“I admit that I am a nervous Nellie type of mother and always do my research with respect to everything. I had a closet filled with lice fighting tools anticipating the day that my kids would have lice. You can’t imagine my shock when everything I tried failed. My kids did not want to come near me over those two months because I was constantly picking and combing, and spraying and washing their hair. Nothing I did worked for longer than three days. Finally I expanded my search online and found LiceDoctors. I figured with the full guarantee, Better Business Bureau approval, and the medical doctor on staff you must be good. I’m happy to report I was finally right about something regarding lice treatment. Your staff is excellent and I referred you to many friends. Thank you so much.”

“Do you remember the movie with Sarah Jessica Parker with head lice? That was my story too. I was in a meeting with important clients when our office admin came in to tell me that my daughter’s school nurse was on the line. As soon as I picked up the phone she informed me that my child had lice and that I needed to get her soon. My husband was out of town and the nurse said that my daughter would not be admitted to school until she had been cleared of nits. I was trying to maintain my cool but I could not afford to miss the next day of work as I had a key meeting planned. The nurse suggested that I call LiceDoctors. You saved us! Stacy was nothing short of a miracle worker. I am indebted to you and your prompt and effective treatment! Thank you.”
Candace L. in Carlisle, Pennsylvania
“I never knew there was such a thing as a professional lice treatment service so I wasted weeks trying in vain to get rid of the head lice on my kids. It was an awful, stressful experience that I plan to never repeat. Finding LiceDoctors was manna from heaven. The results were quick and thorough. I love knowing that our lice case is history. If they ever show up again, LiceDoctors is in my speed dial and I will waste no time before I call. Thank you a million times.”

Can Kids Get Head Lice From Sharing a Computer and Keyboard?
Lice have become so commonplace in school that parents are really afraid that their kids will pick up a case from another student. It is not an unreasonable fear, given that head lice affect a reported 12 million school children each year. As a parent, it is helpful to keep in mind that head lice are generally not picked up through objects such as a computer and keyboard. While it is not out of the realm of possibility, it is an unlikely conduit for passing along lice.
For a child to pick up head lice through a keyboard, the lice would need to have climbed out of someone’s head onto an object that offers it no food. A keyboard is not an inviting place for a louse. The bug wants temperature of around 98.6 degrees and human blood for its breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Lice generally only leave a human head if they have another human head to go to.
Assuming that the lice did climb out of the head onto the keyboard, they would die off of the head fairly quickly. The child would have to sit down at the keyboard shortly after the lice arrived on the keyboard and the lice would have to make their way up the arms of the child into the child’s hair. While this is not an impossibility, it is an unlikely scenario. In fact an estimated 95% of head lice cases are transmitted from head to head contact, not through and in inanimate object or vector. The biggest risk of kids using computers at school is if the kids are lined up in close contact to each other. In that case, lice may migrate from one head to another.
As a parent, you can not completely protect your child against head lice.The best advice is to spray or gel the hair to give it a barrier to ward off the lice and then check your child routinely. If you find signs of lice or nits, LiceDoctors can help you. Just call us in the Harrisburg area at 717-963-2100 and we will eliminate the lice at your home at your convenience.
