What Do Head Lice Look Like

If your scalp itches intensely and you feel the sensation of small creatures crawling on your head—both common symptoms of head lice infestation—it’s likely you’re in need of lice treatment.

Head lice—or head louse in its singular form—are tiny, wingless parasitic insects that attach to human head hair and consume blood from the human scalp. When the head louse feeds, it leaves behind a saliva secretion that causes an allergic reaction in humans, leading to small, red bumps and extreme scalp itchiness.

Head lice are a global problem found commonly in school children ages 3 to 11 and their household members. They are most commonly transmitted by close personal contact with a lice-infected individual or by sharing personal belongings such as:

  • Brushes
  • Combs
  • Towels
  • Hats
  • Hoodies
  • Headphones
  • Clothing
  • Bedding
  • Furniture

Nit Egg

Because head lice don’t have wings, they cannot jump or fly. Instead, they use their claws to latch onto individual hairs or threads of clothing and crawl from host to host. Household pets, like dogs and cats, do not spread head lice.

Head lice are highly contagious. If left untreated, they will continue to grow in number exponentially. When feeding, a female louse can live for about 30 days, producing about six nits (lice eggs) each day. Off the head, and detached from their food source, head lice will die within three days.

If you suspect that you or a family member has head lice, we recommend that you seek mobile lice treatment immediately.

I called and they were super attentive to getting me in the same day I called. Lea was amazing and took such great and thorough care of each of us. She took the time to explain preventative measures we could do at home and also was super informative on what to do after she left. I was super stressed that we all had lice as we had never had it before and after Lea left I felt so much at ease!!! This was worth the time and money and so much more comfortable to be in my home getting treated. Highly recommend!!!!

One of the best experiences I've ever had with a business that deals in something icky! We called yesterday on a Sunday morning and spoke with Lea. Lea was extremely friendly, courteous, informative and calming! She assured us they could come out and check our three heads of hair that same day! When we called back (after making sure we three could all be home), we spoke with Jacob. Jacob was just as friendly and courteous, with a touch of great humor. They scheduled us right away to be there in two hours. Shannon was our technician (not sure what they're called) and she was super nice, efficient, informative and gentle. She worked with us in precise fashion and showed us step by step what she was doing. She also left us easy instructions for follow up care. Ironically, we all were completely lice free! Trust me, with our busy lives, the peace of mind of having professionals clear us of any worry was well worth the price! Thank you Lea, Jacob and Shannon. Y'all are total ROCK STARS!!!! I will use you again and recommend you to all my friends!

Lice Care Solutions is a great alternative to other lice removal places. I love that we were treated in the comfort of our own home. I called before 8am and was immediately connected to a scheduler who was able to fit me in the same day. Our technician, Courtney, was on time, friendly, and very professional. She was able to check all the members of my family without us all having to spend hours at a facility. I was able to make dinner and start washing all the bedding, towels, etc. while my daughter was being treated. That alone is worth the price! Also, my daughter commented on how Lice Care Solution's method of combing through the hair with coconut oil is much more pleasant than the other place's method of combing through dry hair. Courtney was extremely thorough. I feel confident that she got every single nit. While I hope I never have to see her again (haha), I would definitely recommend Courtney and Lice Care Solutions. THANK YOU!

There are more than 3,000 louse species in existence, but only three are known to affect humans:

  • Head lice—live in human hair, close to the scalp
  • Body lice—live in clothing and bedding; most commonly found on people who aren’t able to bathe or wash their laundry regularly
  • Pubic lice—also called crabs, these lice live on the skin and hair around the pubic area

Household pets, like dogs and cats, do not spread human head lice.

What do head lice look like?

Head lice are tiny, parasitic insects measuring about the size of a sesame seed (2-3 millimeters). They are wingless creatures and move about by grasping onto hair or threads with their claws.

Head Lice

Because head lice are tiny and often in motion, they can be difficult to spot with the naked eye. The best way to detect them is through a wet check, segmenting hair with professional-grade lice and nit comb.

What do Nits, or head lice eggs look like?

Nits, or head lice eggs, are typically easier to detect. Less than a millimeter long (measuring roughly the size of dandruff) and oval in shape, they range from white to brown in color. Nits have a sticky residue, causing them to stay attached the hair until you seek lice treatment.

Nit Egg

The CDC estimates 6 to 12 million head lice infestations occur in the United States each year. Head lice are highly contagious and are most often contracted by preschool students, elementary students, and those who work at daycares or schools with young children.

how to identify head lice

If you believe you or a family member has head lice, it’s important that you contact a trained lice removal professional as soon as possible to receive lice treatment. Lice Care Solutions offers same-day mobile lice removal appointments to treat for head lice and nits and teach you and your family how to get rid of lice.

One of the best experiences I've ever had with a business that deals in something icky! We called yesterday on a Sunday morning and spoke with Lea. Lea was extremely friendly, courteous, informative and calming! She assured us they could come out and check our three heads of hair that same day! When we called back (after making sure we three could all be home), we spoke with Jacob. Jacob was just as friendly and courteous, with a touch of great humor. They scheduled us right away to be there in two hours. Shannon was our technician (not sure what they're called) and she was super nice, efficient, informative and gentle. She worked with us in precise fashion and showed us step by step what she was doing. She also left us easy instructions for follow up care. Ironically, we all were completely lice free! Trust me, with our busy lives, the peace of mind of having professionals clear us of any worry was well worth the price! Thank you Lea, Jacob and Shannon. Y'all are total ROCK STARS!!!! I will use you again and recommend you to all my friends!

Lice Care Solutions is a great alternative to other lice removal places. I love that we were treated in the comfort of our own home. I called before 8am and was immediately connected to a scheduler who was able to fit me in the same day. Our technician, Courtney, was on time, friendly, and very professional. She was able to check all the members of my family without us all having to spend hours at a facility. I was able to make dinner and start washing all the bedding, towels, etc. while my daughter was being treated. That alone is worth the price! Also, my daughter commented on how Lice Care Solution's method of combing through the hair with coconut oil is much more pleasant than the other place's method of combing through dry hair. Courtney was extremely thorough. I feel confident that she got every single nit. While I hope I never have to see her again (haha), I would definitely recommend Courtney and Lice Care Solutions. THANK YOU!

In-Home Lice Removal
& Lice Treatment Services

Medical Professional To Your Door
45 Day Guarantee  

There are many over-the-counter lice treatments, lice shampoos, and home remedies for lice. Unfortunately, many of these lice treatment methods contain toxic chemicals, and without lots of lice removal experience, one can easily miss a few nits (louse eggs) and inadvertently create a colony of “super lice” that are resistant to lice treatment.

Below we have summarized the steps on how to remove lice using a wet combing technique that we use in all of our treatments as wet combing is the most effective way to get rid of head lice

How To Get Rid Of Head Lice Naturally

HOW TO CHECK FOR HEAD LICE

Common symptoms of head lice Head lice are highly contagious, particularly among children and their families. The most common symptoms of a head lice infestation include:

  • Extreme itching on the scalp, neck and ears
  • Small red bumps on the scalp, neck and ears
  • Feeling movement on your scalp
  • Visible lice in your hair or on your scalp
  • Visible nits (lice eggs) in your hair
  • Sores developed from excessive scratching

How to Check for Head Lice

Checking for head lice typically takes between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on the thickness and length of hair. Here are some easy-to-follow steps to determine whether the person you are checking for lice will need lice treatment: Instructions:

 Tools You will need To Check For Head Lice

 

(1) towel
(1) wide-tooth comb
(1) medical-grade lice and nit comb
(1) bottle of lice shampoo
(1) bottle of lice conditioner
(1) wet paper towel
(1) zip-lock bag
(1) person to administer the lice check Before receiving a head check, the person getting checked for head lice should complete the following two steps:

  1. Wash their hair in the shower with lice shampoo.
  2. After toweling off from the shower, the person getting checked should sit on a stool or low-backed chair.

Instructions for the person administering the lice check:

1. Drape a fresh, dry towel around the recipient’s shoulders.

2. Saturate the recipient’s hair with a generous amount of conditioner. (Side note: This type of head check is called a “wet check” because lubrication is used to assist in detecting and demobilizing the head lice. While wet checks are often more time consuming than “dry checks”—head checks that do not utilize conditioner—they are also significantly more effective when accurately determining whether or not someone has head lice.)

3. Use a wide-tooth comb to organize hair, combing all hair in one direction (front to back).

4. Use a nit comb to comb hair from ear to ear, starting at the sideburns, if present. If you find any head lice, simply comb them out and dispatch them onto a damp paper towel. Then seal the paper towel, and the head lice, in a ziplock bag.

5. Flip hair over and comb forward all hair (back to front), using a wide-tooth comb.

6. Comb hair from the nape of the neck to the front of the ear using a nit comb. Dispatch any lice you may find onto a wet paper towel.

What Should You Do In You Find Head Lice?

 

If you find any head lice or nits, we recommend that you contact Lice Care Solutions immediately to book your same-day appointment. Lice are highly contagious and will multiply exponentially if left unchecked.

Lice Care Solutions offers an in-home lice removal service that uses an all-natural, non-toxic lice treatment to get rid of lice. If you or a loved one has head lice, we recommend that reach out to a professionally trained lice removal technician for lice treatment.

What If I Want To Remove Head Lice On My Own?

We also offer our Head Lice Removal DIY Kits so you can remove head lice and nits in the comfort of your own home! It’s important to us that everyone has access to lice prevention education and tools—even if they don’t have time to schedule an appointment with one of our mobile lice removal technicians or do not live in one of our areas of mobile coverage. Our clients now have access to our signature, all-natural products at a very reasonable.

Note: A complete list of instructions come with each kit.

What Are Head Lice

Lice — or louse in its singular form — are tiny, wingless parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans and other mammals. Though more than 3000 louse species are in existence, three affect humans:

  • Head lice– live in human hair, close to the scalp

  • Body lice– live in clothing and bedding; most commonly found on people who aren’t able to bathe or wash laundry regularly

  • Pubic lice– also called crabs, these lice live on the skin and hair around the pubic area

How Common Are Head Lice?

Head lice are a global problem found commonly in schoolchildren ages 3 to 11 and their household members. The CDC estimates 6 to 12 million infestations occur in the United States each year.

What Does A Head Louse Look Like?

The head louse is a tiny, wingless insect with claws perfectly suited for grasping onto hair and threads. During its lifetime, a head louse goes through three stages:

The egg (also called the nit)– often found near the scalp 

Picture Of A Nit

The nymph– an immature louse less than 9 days old

 

The adult– adult head lice grow to be about 2-3mm long. 

Picture Of Head Lice

How Are Head Lice Spread?

Head lice are most commonly transmitted by close personal contact (such as head-to-head contact) or by sharing belongings like brushes, clothing and towels. Because lice don’t have wings, they cannot jump or fly. Instead, they use their claws to latch onto individual hairs or threads of clothing and crawl from host to host. 

Can Pets Transmit Head Lice?

No, household pets like dogs and cats do not spread human head lice. 

What Is The Lifespan Of A Head Louse?

A head louse can live about 30 days feeding on a human scalp. However, without sustenance (human blood), it will die within one to two days. 

I Think My Child Has Lice. What Should I Do?

Call us immediately! Unlike the common cold, lice won’t go away by themselves. If untreated, these highly contagious parasites will grow in number, as each female louse continues to lay about 6 eggs per day. 

Can I Remove My Child’s Lice Myself?

Yes, and no. While your local pharmacy most likely carries a variety of lice-removal kits, properly removing all nits and lice can be tedious at best. At worst, the feat can be practically impossible if you don’t know the correct method of removal. 

I Used an Over-The-Counter Head Lice Removal Kit, but Now the Lice Have Returned in Full Force.

Lice removal takes time and patience; there’s really no cutting corners. If you’re like many of our clients who found us after unsuccessfully attempting to eradicate lice on their own, we suspect we know your fatal error– You got rid of every last adult louse but missed a few nits (louse eggs). If that’s the case, we have some good news and some bad news for you: Bad news? You’ve likely created a colony of “super lice.” As eggs, they were exposed to toxic chemicals, but they still didn’t die. [Eek!] Here’s the good news: You found us. Just say the word, and our highly trained technicians will rid you of even the Hulk-iest of lice.  

Will My Neighbors Know My Family Has Lice?

Unless you tell them, your neighbors won’t suspect a thing. Lice Care Solutions takes care to ensure the privacy of our clients by dispatching our technicians in unmarked, inconspicuous vehicles.

 

Is Lice Care Solutions Hipaa Compliant?

Yes!

 

Is Lice Removal Treatment Safe?

Ours is. At Lice Care Solutions, we use an all-natural, nontoxic solution along with a highly specialized combing method to eradicate all head lice and their nits. 

What Goes into Your Special Lice Removal Solution?

Unfortunately, this one we can’t answer. It’s a trade secret! But we’ll give you a hint– it has an olive oil base.

I called and they were super attentive to getting me in the same day I called. Lea was amazing and took such great and thorough care of each of us. She took the time to explain preventative measures we could do at home and also was super informative on what to do after she left. I was super stressed that we all had lice as we had never had it before and after Lea left I felt so much at ease!!! This was worth the time and money and so much more comfortable to be in my home getting treated. Highly recommend!!!!

Lea made this terrifying experience very easy and fun. This is the best answer for our lice problem. She made the kids very comfortable and happy. If this happens again, we will definitely recommend lice care solutions. I will be telling everyone at school and daycare about this service. They are a life saver. Her experience was top notch and she worked very hard. Lea was the best and worth every penny.

One of the best experiences I've ever had with a business that deals in something icky! We called yesterday on a Sunday morning and spoke with Lea. Lea was extremely friendly, courteous, informative and calming! She assured us they could come out and check our three heads of hair that same day! When we called back (after making sure we three could all be home), we spoke with Jacob. Jacob was just as friendly and courteous, with a touch of great humor. They scheduled us right away to be there in two hours. Shannon was our technician (not sure what they're called) and she was super nice, efficient, informative and gentle. She worked with us in precise fashion and showed us step by step what she was doing. She also left us easy instructions for follow up care. Ironically, we all were completely lice free! Trust me, with our busy lives, the peace of mind of having professionals clear us of any worry was well worth the price! Thank you Lea, Jacob and Shannon. Y'all are total ROCK STARS!!!! I will use you again and recommend you to all my friends!

Lice Care Solutions is a great alternative to other lice removal places. I love that we were treated in the comfort of our own home. I called before 8am and was immediately connected to a scheduler who was able to fit me in the same day. Our technician, Courtney, was on time, friendly, and very professional. She was able to check all the members of my family without us all having to spend hours at a facility. I was able to make dinner and start washing all the bedding, towels, etc. while my daughter was being treated. That alone is worth the price! Also, my daughter commented on how Lice Care Solution's method of combing through the hair with coconut oil is much more pleasant than the other place's method of combing through dry hair. Courtney was extremely thorough. I feel confident that she got every single nit. While I hope I never have to see her again (haha), I would definitely recommend Courtney and Lice Care Solutions. THANK YOU!

What Are Head Lice

Lice — or louse in its singular form — are tiny, wingless parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans and other mammals. Though more than 3000 louse species are in existence, three affect humans:

  • Head lice– live in human hair, close to the scalp

  • Body lice– live in clothing and bedding; most commonly found on people who aren’t able to bathe or wash laundry regularly

  • Pubic lice– also called crabs, these lice live on the skin and hair around the pubic area

How Common Are Head Lice?

Head lice are a global problem found commonly in schoolchildren ages 3 to 11 and their household members. The CDC estimates 6 to 12 million infestations occur in the United States each year.

What Does A Head Louse Look Like?

The head louse is a tiny, wingless insect with claws perfectly suited for grasping onto hair and threads. During its lifetime, a head louse goes through three stages:

The egg (also called the nit)– often found near the scalp 

Picture Of A Nit

The nymph– an immature louse less than 9 days old

 

The adult– adult head lice grow to be about 2-3mm long. 

Picture Of Head Lice

How Are Head Lice Spread?

Head lice are most commonly transmitted by close personal contact (such as head-to-head contact) or by sharing belongings like brushes, clothing and towels. Because lice don’t have wings, they cannot jump or fly. Instead, they use their claws to latch onto individual hairs or threads of clothing and crawl from host to host. 

Can Pets Transmit Head Lice?

No, household pets like dogs and cats do not spread human head lice. 

What Is The Lifespan Of A Head Louse?

A head louse can live about 30 days feeding on a human scalp. However, without sustenance (human blood), it will die within one to two days. 

I Think My Child Has Lice. What Should I Do?

Call us immediately! Unlike the common cold, lice won’t go away by themselves. If untreated, these highly contagious parasites will grow in number, as each female louse continues to lay about 6 eggs per day. 

Can I Remove My Child’s Lice Myself?

Yes, and no. While your local pharmacy most likely carries a variety of lice-removal kits, properly removing all nits and lice can be tedious at best. At worst, the feat can be practically impossible if you don’t know the correct method of removal.
