What Do Head Lice Look Like?

by | Jan 9, 2019 | Head Lice Information | 0 comments

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.

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!
