How Much Does Your In-The-Home Lice Removal Service Cost?

Lice treatment services are charged either per person or by the hour. Hourly pricing is usually the less expensive route to take. LiceDoctors charges by the hour and our prices to check and treat the family are among the lowest in the industry. When considering a lice treatment, if a company quotes a lower hourly rate, find out how long it takes to check a person’s head; less experienced service providers may take several hours per head.

In addition, make sure there are no hidden costs including mandatory follow-up visits, requirements to purchase products, extra fees for longer hair, etc. LiceDoctors offers the option to purchase a professional grade lice comb and lice prevention products but they are not required.

Lice Treatment Service Information

Your expert lice technician will apply oil and methodically comb lice and eggs from the hair. She will then handpick any remaining nits (eggs) from the hair and finish up with a final oil application and comb-through.   Expertise is important here as if you leave two nits in the hair, untreated, the case will start again.
