Why Lice Infestations are Tricky:

We understand how frustrating it can be to try to treat head lice on your own. Lice have mutated and have become resistant to chemical lice treatments. In order to put an end to a lice infestation, every nit (lice egg) must be removed from the hair. If nits are left behind with no follow-up, they will hatch and the case will start up again.

What We Do:

  • A technician will come to you with the tools and expertise to get rid of your lice infestation.
  • She will be able to find, identify, and remove camouflaged nits (lice eggs) and she will stop live bugs in their tracks and extract them from the hair. 
  • Your treatment comes with a full 30 day guarantee. 
  • We will help you whenever you need us--day or night, 365 days a year. 

We offer same day service - 7 days a week. Call us at 202-570-7406 for lice service at your convenience.

Lice in Washington D.C.

Lice has historically spread throughout the D.C. area via schools, public parks, and the WMATA, especially on the Metro. While summer months are common peaks for lice outbreaks in the city, lice can run rampant during any season, especially when kids spend a lot of time in close proximity to each other. No matter the time of year or day of the week, we offer an immediate and safe remedy to treat your lice problem.

LiceDoctors FAQs

If you or your kids have long hair, you should wear it pulled up in a bun or a braid and spray a protective coating over the hair when around other people in the DC area.This makes the hair more challenging for the lice to grab onto and climb up to the scalp. LiceDoctors has a lice repellent spray that coats the hair and has a peppermint scent that helps to repel lice.
It can be difficult to identify a case of head lice. Head lice are common in the Washington DC metro area and they often go undetected because people do not know what to look for. A bright light, magnifying lens, and fine-toothed comb will help in finding lice. If you don’t see a live louse (they move quickly), then look for nits (eggs) that are glued to the hair about 1/4 from the scalp. If you are unsure of a head lice diagnosis call in LiceDoctors and a lice specialist will come to your D.C. area home and let you know for sure
Lice transmission happens when an infected person comes into  head to head contact with another person. The lice crawl from head to head; they do not fly. Lice are not likely to be transferred through caps, helmets, and hair brushes, but it is possible.
Lice are very common today as lice have mutated and become immune to chemical lice treatments. These lice, called super lice, are often passed from child to child.  Approximately 6-12 million cases are estimated each year, although the number may be higher as many people don’t report it. Children in Washington DC, as around the nation, often present with “super lice”.

Client Testimonials

  • “After two relapses, I knew I needed to bring in a professional to help us get rid of the lice. LiceDoctors came highly recommended from friends. It’s been 4 months and no signs of lice.” Maria S in Washington DC

  • "Between my wife and me, we missed 5 days of working trying to get rid of the head lice infestation that had invaded our kids' heads. When we were at our wit's end, we found you on-line.  You were so professional and knowledgeable on the phone that I knew we were in good hands. I was right.  I wish we had known of you sooner but am glad we found you when we did." Aaron L in Washington DC

  • "While we were at the pediatrician's office for a check-up, he noticed that my daughter was scratching her head. (How did I miss this?).  He examined her head, told me she had head lice, and immediately directed us to LiceDoctors. He said that you have a better track record than the products that are sold at drug stores or by prescription. Two hours later, Dianne was at my house and busy removing all the eggs from my daughter and me (ugh). Anyway, the whole process was painless and it worked. Thanks so much to LiceDoctors and Dianne for helping us in our time of need!" Sonya G. in D.C.

Lice Tips

Can You Get Lice On D.C Bus or Subway?

As people in the district commute to and from work each day, we have been asked if it is possible to pick up lice on the metro or a bus. The answer is yes, but the likelihood is low. It is possible for a louse to crawl off of someone's head and onto the seat but usually the bug will not leave someone's head unless there is another head available to crawl onto.
