WHAT TO EXPECT:
The trained technician will complete a full head check to identify lice.
The technician will apply a nontoxic enzyme-based solution and perform a comprehensive comb-out using the Shepherd Method™ to remove nits and lice from the hair.
The technician using the strand by strand method will section the hair and examine it in paper thin layers to make sure that all nits and lice have been removed from each strand of the hair.
Once the strand by strand method have been completed, a final re-check will be conducted to ensure that all evidence have been removed.
During visit the technician will educate you about lice and how to prevent future infestations.
The technician will show you the proper way to do future head checks. Many times hair/scalp debris is mistaken for head lice.
Nits (the eggs of the female head louse) are small BROWN, oval-shaped eggs that are to the side of a hair shaft glued at an angle.
The pearly white nits are EMPTY nits that have already hatched.
Nits must be laid by live lice. You cannot "catch nits."
Once laid, it takes 7-10 days for a nit to hatch, and another 12-15 days for the female to mature and begin laying her own eggs.
Head lice are clear in color when hatched, then quickly develop a reddish-brown color after feeding.
Head lice are about the size of sesame seeds.
Head lice have six legs equipped with claws to grasp the hair.
Head lice are crawling insects. They cannot hop, jump, or fly.
Head lice do not thrive on pets. They are specie specific which means they ONLY feed on humans.
Head lice live for approximately 30 days on a host and a female louse may lay up to 100 nits (eggs).
Head lice don't care if the hair is dirty or clean, short or long.
