LiceDoctors is the best choice for group lice screenings. Technicians are experienced in identifying and eradicating head lice. We have checked and treated over 500,000 clients!
LiceDoctors will send technicians to your location to screen your group. Head lice are transferred through head to head contact and will spread quickly when groups are in close contact. Your technician(s) will identify and treat all affected group members to stop the spread immediately.
Each summer we screen campers discreetly at overnight and day camps. Our technicians are there on day one when the campers arrive and we return after parents’ visiting weekend to screen campers again. A lice-free camp makes the difference between a fun summer and a stress-filled experience!
While head lice can affect anyone, the majority of cases are found in school-age children. LiceDoctors can screen your students so that cases are caught and treated and students do not have to miss any school. Parents and students will thank you!
An outbreak of head lice at a daycare center can wreak havoc in the lives of parents who depend on the center so that they can go to work. LiceDoctors can screen children on a regular basis (i.e. monthly) to prevent outbreaks or a technician can screen after you have discovered lice.
Head lice can spread like wildfire through groups and senior facilities are no exception. Senior citizens often become very anxious when they discover head lice. Our calm and experienced technicians will visit the facility to screen and clear them and leave them feeling relieved.
LiceDoctors has affiliations with a number of social services around the nation. When a family can not afford lice treatment, the case worsens exponentially. Families need help with this situation and we have the experience and track record needed to screen and clear everyone.
We can usually have technicians at your facility as quickly as you want us. Generally, camps and schools sign us up in advance for routine screenings, , but when you have an outbreak, we will make every effort to get technicians to you right away.
Head lice are inside of a translucent shell and have a distinctive appearance. They are tear-dropped shaped with an antenna in the front. Against a white background, they are brown. If what you pull out of the hair and place against a white background blends in, you are not looking at lice or eggs. You may have dandruff, DEC plugs (oily secretions from glands), or debris.
Lice eggs will hatch after about 2 weeks in your hair but the shells of the eggs will likely stay until they are combed or pulled out. It is important to note that a case of lice will not go away on its own. It will only get worse with time. Lice eggs are glued to the hair and will not fall out; they must be physically removed.
