Why the Abundance of Lice Today?

Why the Abundance of Lice Today?
Updated on 
September 30, 2019

Today Great Neck And Port Washington have their share of head lice. That was not always the case. What happened?

Whether you live in Great Neck or Plandome, Flower Hill or Salem, or anywhere in the area, one thing is for sure: there are plenty of cases of head lice around. I grew up in Port; in fact, my 98 year old dad still lives in the house that I grew up in in Sands Point. When I was a kid at Manorhaven School and then Sousa Junior High (yes, it used to be a junior high school) and then Schreiber, we didn’t have head lice. At least no one I knew about had lice. Now it seems like everyone has lice.

What happened? To make a long story short, head lice developed an immunity to lice treatment chemical products. They generally don’t work to kill the bugs and do not kill the nits (eggs). They can not permiate the outer shell of the nit to seep inside and kill the bug. When enough people use chemicals for a long enough time, the target of the chemical will adapt so as to become resistant. This is what has happened with lice.

You need to try a different approach and LiceDoctors has an answer to this problem. Technicians use treatments that are all-natural...no chemicals are used. They loosen the nits with oil, comb them out methodically, and then they go through all of the hair and hand pick out the nits. They will check all over the head, including around the ears and at the nape of the neck. LiceDoctors technicians are adept at finding all of the nits, even though these eggs tend to camouflage in the hair.

Head lice are not dangerous but they sure are annoying. Furthermore, they can be a deterrent to being admitted to school. Why fight this nuisance alone when there are professionals to help you? LiceDoctors can remedy your lice problem any day or evening of the week or weekend. Just call today at 516-324-2800 .
