itchy scalp

There are adult head lice, and then there are nits. If you don’t know much about these parasites, then nits are basically lice eggs, which are, unfortunately enough, significantly more difficult to get rid of than adult lice. More

Inside the Life of a Louse

Since our evolution as a separate species, we humans have been the hosts of these creepy bugs.

Lice have also evolved to stay with particular areas of our bodies. This way, they have been divided into three parts: head lice, body lice and pubic lice.

Our focus will be on head lice—the most common ones.

The Lice Life Cycle Explained

Head lice or Pediculus humanus capitis is a creepy, six-legged creature that lives on the human scalp and feeds on human blood.

Head lice go through three stages. They are eggs, nymphs and adults. Let’s explore them a bit further:

Eggs

Lice lay eggs that are called nits. They are quite difficult to detect and can be confused with dandruff.

The adult female louse lays these eggs. After an egg has been laid, it takes around 6 to 9 days to hatch.

It should be remembered that these nits can only live on a human head. The human scalp provides it the right environment to hatch. If a nit falls off the hair shaft, it won’t be able to survive.

Nymphs

After the egg hatches, it releases a nymph. It looks like an adult head louse and its size is equal to that of a pinhead. It takes around 7 days for the nymph to actually become an adult.

Adult Head Louse

The adult head louse has 6 legs and is about the size of a sesame seed. It is the adult head louse that causes all the itching and scratching. The female head louse is the key player here. She is larger and can lay up to 8 nits every day. An adult louse can easily live for a month on a human head.

Transferring Methodology

The claws of the head louse help them cling to the shafts of hair. This means that they can crawl from one head to another. However, for that to happen, the heads must be in close contact with each other.

It should be remembered that lice can only crawl—they cannot jump, hop or fly.

Can They Survive on Other Objects?

Head lice can live up to 24 hours without the human scalp. Some of the surfaces that they can live on can include carpets, floors, clothing items, head phones, etc.

If your kid has gone through lice treatment, it is very important that you clean the entire house, especially the surfaces mentioned above.

With a complete understanding of the lice life cycle, we at Lice Busters offer lice removal Plantation based services. Applying all-natural lice treatment methods, we ensure that you completely get rid of lice. Book an appointment with us.

Top Bug Movies that Prove That Lice Aren’t the Only Monsters Around

Remember Starship Troopers? You probably laugh about it now, but as we can all agree, the gigantic bugs were nothing short of a nightmare for most of us as kids. The huge creepy crawlies that planned to take over the world and destroy mankind were frightening. But for those who were brave souls, they were a chance to show every other alien force just how awesome mankind is.

For some reason, however, lice seem a lot scarier than the massive bugs on our screens. Perhaps it’s because despite their tiny size, they are much more real than any science fiction villain.

But their realness just goes to show that we can face our worst fears head-on, and get rid of the problem. Now imagine if the bugs from bug movies were real. Then we’d have something to be scared of!

Here are a few bug movies that were not only the bane of our existence as kids, but the reason we’re glad lice aren’t the only bugs around!

Bug (2006)

Warning: not for the weak-hearted!

Bug is about a war veteran who decides to stay together with a lonely woman in a spooky, scary Oklahoma motel room. Things start getting weird when they encounter a pest infestation. While a cockroach or two is something you expect to see in a motel, what would you do with you encounter hundreds of bugs?

The tagline of the film? Paranoia is contagious.

Mimic

This is on top of our horror movie list! The plot centers on an entomologist who designs a bug to kill cockroaches. But that backfires as the insect joins the dark side and creates an army of its kind. Their goal? Destroy mankind.

If that’s not enough, these insects can mimic human form. Yikes!

They Nest (2000)

Remember Animorphs? Well, this is something similar, but scarier. The movie is about an island in Maine that is inhabited by a strange species of insects that attack humans and take over their mind and body!

Imagine having to face that!

Not only are these bug movies scary, they are a reminder that lice aren’t the only problem around.

While head lice are annoying, they’re not difficult to get rid of—and a lice treatment center can certainly help!

We are a head lice removal clinic in Pembroke Pines that uses natural products to get rid of nits and lice from each strand of hair.

We also offer free head lice screenings and in-home treatment services. Feel free to call us at (800) 405-8201 for further information and details!
