Lice removal service

For being so little, head lice can certainly cause big problems. Starting with the call you get from the school nurse to come pick up your child from school to the whole house elimination process that you need to go through, head lice cause you to spend both time and money.
Although some people see head lice as a problem that only affects people who have poor cleaning habits, most understand that even the cleanest of homes may at some time need lice removal service to make sure they have eliminated the annoying problem of both lice and nits.
It is very difficult to find reliable data on how many people get head lice each year in the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates, however, that 6 million to 12 million infestations occur each year among American children 3 to 11 years of age. In addition to these staggering numbers of infestations, research shows that strains of lice that are resistant to most over-the-counter treatments have now been found in at least 25 states. These two facts combined point to the necessity for having a lice removal service treat your home. In order to be sure that lice are no longer a problem in your home you must kill every single lice and all of its nits.
Unfortunately, without professional lice removal, a problem that you think you have eliminated can be back in a week. In fact, after seven to ten days the unseen nit hatches and becomes what is known as a nymph, or a young louse. Nymphs are barely 1.1 and 1.3 mm in size. Their small size combined with the fact that they are tan or white in color, makes them practically invisible, complicating the head lice removal process. Nymphs mature into adult head lice within a time span of one to two weeks. Even mature adult lice do not tend to grow larger than 2mm, the size of a pinhead, so they are still nearly impossible to see.
Professional lice removal services are needed if you want to feel safe in your home and avoid another dreaded phone call from your child’s school.
