Super Lice Prevention​

What are SUPER lice and how do I prevent them?

“What are SUPER lice and what makes them different from regular lice?”

This is an important question and is a question we often get asked as professionals in the lice eradication business. SUPER lice are a new strain of head lice that have genetically mutated to form a resistance to lice-killing chemicals that until recently were able to kill lice and nits (lice eggs).  With the occurrence of this new strain of SUPER lice, it has allowed an epidemic to emerge as over-the-counter products that once worked to kill lice now are deemed useless, allowing the lice to spread more readily throughout the community.

“How do I prevent SUPER lice from reoccurring?”

This is not an easy question to answer as some would think. Although there are a variety of measures you can take to prevent lice infestation in your family, nothing is 100% preventative. However, taking these steps will help keep the bugs away.

Keeping loose hair pulled back can prevent lice from making a home in your child’s hair. Loose and long hair is more susceptible to infestation because there is more of it for a rouge louse to find its way.
