Signs of Head Lice
Our certified Lice Detection technicians will come to the convenience of your home to screen each family member. We conduct a thorough head check prior to administering any form of treatment. Thin layers of hair are checked for nits and/or bugs. A positive head check will indicate that evidence is found and treatment is necessary. A negative head check will indicate no evidence is found, therefore treatment is not necessary. Evidence is considered to be an actual bug or eggs which will confirm the presence of head lice. Below are signs of Head Lice.
Small red bumps on scalp and back of neck.
Itching, only 50% of people will itch due to an allergic reaction from louse saliva.
Difficulty sleeping (lice are more active at night).
Appearance of nits, small specks attached to the hair shaft.
A tickling sensation in hair.
Irritability (feeling lousy).
Swollen lymph nodes in the neck.
