Let us make a house call to treat your family at your convenience.

San Mateo and Burlingame FAQs

Head lice are tiny, sneaky little buggers that easily hide from sight. The bugs themselves are fast and quickly hide behind the hairs so are often missed. What they cannot hide are their eggs, called nits. The female louse lays her eggs on the hair shaft very close to the scalp. The nits are very tiny, but they can be seen on close examination.  We recommend checking for head lice in clean dry loose hair under very bright light (sunlight is best!) and using some simple magnification. Reading glasses work well for this.  Imagine the hairs on the head like trees in a forest, if you part the hair you can see through several layers of trees (hair!) on either side of the part. Look about ¼-½ inch from the scalp for a tiny lump on the side of the hair shaft like a mushroom growing on the side of a tree. If you are still not sure, a LiceDoctors professional expert can come to your San Mateo or Burlingame home at your convenience to give you a definitive answer. She will show you what the lice and eggs look like so you can identify them in the future. 
No, it’s not necessary at all. The need for household cleaning and sterilizing is a persistent head lice myth. We, at LiceDoctors San Mateo or Burlingame, after treating over a half-million heads, know that if you are correctly treating the family, there is no need to treat the home. Head lice cannot survive away from a human head for more than 24 hours (and most, not even that long).
A.  Lice like clean hair better than dirty hair. The more oil there is in the hair, the more difficult it is for the louse to hold on and crawl around. Lice only crawl (no jumping or flying), so they simply crawl from one person’s head to another person’s head (food source), which is why lice are so prevalent in San Mateo and Burlingame. If you are in close contact with other people, you are at risk for getting lice, whether your hair is clean or dirty.

Client Testimonials

  • “Even though lice are pretty harmless, there's something pretty creepy about your kids having lice in their hair. I'm not embarrassed to say that I immediately went online to find a way to get the problem solved. I wanted no part of this problem. I found LiceDoctors at the top of a local search page, and I arranged an appointment on line. The technician came the next morning as scheduled, and within just a few hours, my four kids were treated, my husband and I were checked (no lice- I was really relieved), and we knew what to do going forward.  I love this company.” Andrea B. in Burlingame, CA.

  • “LiceDoctors had a person at my house just a few hours after my first call. The whole experience was fast, easy, and cost way less than I feared. We highly recommend LiceDoctors.” Lindsey I. in Belmont, CA.

  • “The website pretty much said it all- these people know what they are doing. While lice might seem to be an easy to solve problem, we totally struggled for weeks before realizing we needed the pros. Having LiceDoctors come to our house was ultra effective, and the convenience was really appreciated. Great company providing awesome service.” Jonathan Z. in San Mateo, California
