Why Choose Us in Ellicott City?

There’s one thing in Ellicott City older than the historic downtown and the old grist mill: head lice!

Pricing in Ellicott City

LiceDoctors is proud of our hourly pricing model. 

We believe in transparency and fairness when it comes to doing business. Because we don’t have brick and mortar locations, we pass along the savings to our customers.

  • $199 for the first hour of work. This initial charge includes up to 50 miles travel each way for your technician.
  • $99 for each additional hour,prorated in quarter hour blocks of time.
  • Average total: $300-$400 (based on a family of 4 and 2.5-3 hours of work).
  • Note this is our average. Factors that come under consideration are the number of people treated for infestations, level of infestations, length and type of hair. 

This is why we charge by the hour:

Lice spreads fast and more often than not, head lice have already spread throughout the family before you even know it. Hourly pricing means no massive leaps in price for each new head treated. By-the-head pricing can lead to a bill twice the size of what you’ll get with LiceDoctors.

Treatment is covered by most FSAs and HSAs, and some insurance plans.

Ellicott City FAQs

Why is school a common place for lice to spread?
Head lice crawl from one head to the next, so they require physical contact between individuals. Because kids in younger years spend so much of the school day in close proximity to one another, it can be a hotbed of head lice activity. Ellicott City schools have moved away from their “no nit” policy which stated, “If a child is found to have head lice, the parents/guardians will be notified. The child will only be readmitted to the program after the staff determines that the lice treatment has been effective and/or it has been 24 hours since the treatment began.
Are “super lice” real?
Absolutely. Because of the use of toxic chemicals in treating head lice, the lice have evolved to be resistant and survive such treatments. That’s why LiceDoctors’ all-natural treatment is all the more important: it is the safest and most effective treatment to eradicate super lice in Ellicott City.
What is the safest lice treatment?
Consumer reports advise the use of a metal comb and lubricant, as used by LiceDoctors, as the safest way to treat head lice. There are no side effects as there may be with chemicals and this process works. We do not use any hot air devices that may be dangerous to use for children under the age of 4 years, or that if not used properly can cause scalp burn. LiceDoctors treatment in Ellicott City has a 99.6% success rate and you can’t beat that!

Client Testimonials

  • “My wife was totally wrapped up in trying to get our kids’ lice under control, but the frustration was mounting. I tried to help, but we weren’t making progress. We tried chemicals, shampoos, cleaning everything in the house, but the lice kept coming back. Finally, I found LiceDoctors and their incredible website. That answered so many questions, including the best way to put an end to the problem- using their in-home service. A technician arrived just a few hours after our call and calmly explained everything. She treated our children and gave us simple and clear advice. My only regret is that we didn’t call sooner.” Jeff D. in Ellicott City, Maryland

  • “I am a stay at home mom who prides herself on doing everything for my kids myself. I’m one of those put the wallpaper up yourself kind of women. So when my daughters got head lice I was sure I could take care of this on my own. Well I more than met my match with head lice. Finally I threw my hands up, went online, made some phone calls, and determined that LiceDoctors was the most economical and accomplished lice service. I called them and learned an important lesson: some things are better left to professionals! They did a great job!” Candace F. in Ellicott City, MD.
