For much of the last nine to twelve months, most children have been going to school virtually from their own homes. During that time, the rate of transmission of lice from child to child dropped. Schools are notorious locations for the transmission of lice from one person to another. With the promise of a COVID-19 vaccine on the way, there is hope that the pandemic will begin to subside, which means that more and more children will be returning to school. And when they do, it is only a matter of time before lice become a renewed and familiar problem.

If they are caught early, lice do not have to become a major problem for the person who has them. But even a mild case of lice causes itching and irritation of the skin and can be transmitted from one person to another easily. There really is no pleasant experience with lice. The reason we catch lice from other people is that the lice are capable of jumping from one person to another and they like to stay on items like pillows, brushes and bedding. If they can jump from one person to another, they can also miss their intended targets and land in areas of your home where they can multiply. If you have carpet or area rugs in your home, lice can hide in the fibers, where they can reproduce thousands of lice babies that grow into grown lice, who are in search of sustenance…that is where you come in. You are their source of sustenance.
Get Rid of Lice Once And For All
Most people think that treating lice with over-the-counter shampoos and other medications is enough to solve the problem. Those products may, in fact, be sufficient to kill the lice that are living on your scalp and feeding off your skin cells, but what about the lice larvae that might have taken up residence in your carpet, area rugs, or the fabric of your overstuffed recliner? Those are lice infestations in waiting.
