A few reminders about lice:
* Lice do not hop or fly. They are spread by direct head to head contact. Lice is rarely spread through accessories, such as hats and scarves.
* Lice are most commonly found behind the ears and at the nape of the neck.
* Head lice are most active in the dark and cause the most itchiness at night.
* Lice are not indicative of a dirty house or child. Personal hygiene has nothing to do with getting head lice.
* Lice eggs are small, grey-white and oval shaped and are commonly called "nits". Removal of nits require a fine comb and patience.
*Only persons with an active infestation should be treated.
* Supplemental household cleaning activities are recommended to prevent re-infestation after treatment.
We ask that you please do the following to help control the problem:
-Encourage your child to wear hair pulled back, in a ponytail or braid.
-Check your child's head daily.
