Detroit Climate no Problem For Lice

Detroit Climate no Problem For Lice
Updated on 
April 14, 2017

Parents in northern weather climates such as the Detroit and Ann Arbor Michigan areas often ask if lice die in the cold weather. The answer is no. What head lice need to survive are strands of hair (any length even buzz cut) and access to blood in the head, which is their food source. Head lice are incredibly hearty which is why they have been around for thousands of years. If a head louse crawls off the head and does not have access to human blood, it will die within 24-36 hours. Extreme cold or heat will speed up the process of killing lice. While the vast majority of head lice cases are transmitted through head to head contact, lice can also be transferred to others through objects such as coats and hats, which are obviously utilized in winter months.
