The team at Lice Charmers was wonderful. They communicated regularly about available times and about Lex's arrival time. Once she arrived, she did an amazing job delousing our family of four. I have... very thick hair and she did a thorough job removing the mother load of nits and lice. A week later, I found a live bug on my son which he probably got from a friend. Lex returned the next day to treat us again fulfilling their guarantee. Professional. Friendly. High-quality. Convenient. I would recommend Lice Charmers 100%.read more

Lex is incredibly discreet and professional and we felt very comfortable with her in our home. Having lice is a stressful event! She was a comfort and a calm to both my daughter and I. I’ve... recommended Lice Charmers to every parent in my child’s elementary class.read more

Lex came over within an 1.5 hours on a Saturday night. She was great. She was so gentle with our 2.5 year old daughter. We'd absolutely recommend her.

When head lice first showed up on my daughter a year ago, I didn’t know what to do. Naturally I tried the over-the-counter lice shampoo treatment first and alas, it didn’t work!  So I sent a message... to Lex at Lice Charmers one evening and she got RIGHT back to me and offered to come the next morning, to my relief.  She got rid of the lice in a single treatment and even checked me too. When lice showed up AGAIN a year later, I knew exactly who to reach out to - Lice Charmers!  Lex is professional, knowledgable, and thorough.  She is responsive, fun, and truly makes the best out of an unfortunate situation. The convenience of treatment inside the comfort of your own home is SO nice and the rates for service are fair. Having head lice is unfortunate. Having Lice Charmers come remove them from your life is the exact opposite of unfortunate; it’s a pleasure. I can’t recommend Lex and Lice Charmers enough!read more

Lex was very easy to work with and professional. We called late in the evening and were able to get an appointment for the following morning. She arrived in a ordinary car and brought all of her own... supplies. It was much less stressful to have her come to our home then needing to go across town. She was very thorough in her work. The peace of mind from knowing our daughter was treated and cleared 💯 was worth every penny. I would highly recommend Lice Charmers.read more

Fast, in-home service made this process so easy. Lex was great: full of information, friendly, efficient with a tedious process, and was able to come to our house just a few hours after I contacted... her. I hope in the very best way possible that we don't have to call her in the future, but if we have a lice reappearance I'm so glad I know she's there. Highly recommend her!read more

I have never had nor dealt with lice before, so I called lice charmers and scheduled her to come out in the evening. She showed up and checked my hair, my son's, and then my daughter's hair who was... the only person with lice. She got all the lice, and nits out of my daughter's hair and my daughter's hair is very thick. She was very thorough and knowledgeable about lice and how to get rid of them and keep them away. I highly recommend calling her to take care of your lice problem, she also guarantees her work.read more

Definitely recommend this company! We called Lice Charmers late in the afternoon after finding out at least one of our kids had lice. They were able to come out first thing the next morning. Lex was... very nice and worked diligently with all four of us. We felt free of lice and were much more educated than we had been about the subject. Lex even brought a fun kids book about lice. It was great not having to go anywhere to get checked and treated. Thank you so much!read more

For effective and fast lice treatment many families are happy to get a specialist visit in the comfort of their home. Head lice can cause more than just itching. They can cause enormous stress on children and parents. The itching can interrupt sleep, but the mental stress can make it hard to concentrate and make parents feel isolated because of the stigma around talking about head lice and that it can happen to anyone and shouldn’t be a source of shame.

Lice are a problem worldwide and some countries have traditional options and methods that depend on a host of different culture factors, financial, and technological opportunities. There are lice clinics in america as well as salons, mobile services, and other facilities sprouting up everywhere. The earliest lice businesses were most likely founded by parents, especially moms, that were struggling to find a solution head lice for their children and community. Now, there are large national franchises and private corporations that offer a variety of services. You can identify the top lice businesses in your area by searching google maps or Yelp for the best reviews.

The cost of hiring a professional lice service can range from as low as $135 to nearly $1000 based on how much treatment is needed and how urgently.  Kits found at drugstore locations such as CVS, Walgreen, or Walmart cost from $15 to $50, but expect to need multiple kits and be prepared for multiple sessions of hours of combing. If price is an issue, consider using a kit, combing your family with a quality lice comb, and then getting checked by a service to see if that took care of the issue.

Extermination using a professional or medicine is usually only covered by FSA or HSAs, not typical health insurance such as would pay for a general practice doctor appointment. If you do choose a kit, read the reviews carefully for tips on which kits are best and any pointers on how to use them for best results.

Adults head lice live for about 30 days. It takes about 8-10 days for a nit to hatch and another 8-10 days for it to mature into an adult.

A nit is a lice egg and that is composed of the egg casing and the developing louse. Once it hatches it is called a nymph and there are three stages of a nymphs growth and development before it becomes an adult louse.

Nits are laid by female lice by attaching them to the hair shaft with a glue agent that chemically resembles human hair. Nits are less than a millimeter long, brown when occupied and white when empty or hatched. It is extremely difficult for an untrained person to tell a nit from dandruff or other debris commonly found on the scalp. If you find a nit farther away than a quarter inch from the scalp, it is either dead or already hatched. Nits by themselves are not an indicator of a live lice infestation. Nits take about 8-10 days to hatch into nymphs.

Nymphs are adolescent lice that have hatched but not yet developed into mature lice able to mate and reproduce. Nymphs are less mobile than adult lice and harder to see because they are smaller. It takes about 8-10 days for a nymph to grow into an adult louse.

Yes and no. Looking for a lice doctor will not result is good results as there are no doctors that specialize in lice treatment because of the relative ineffectiveness of medical treatments and the fact that lice are not covered by insurance providers that would also bill a doctors office.

Looking through your family’s hair is the best way to catch a lice infestation before it spreads from your children to everyone else in the family. In most cases, the daughters and the mothers have it. Possibly because it is easier for lice to move from long hair to long hair than from short hair to long hair because of the way longer hair may drape down onto another persons head when hugging.

The best places to look for lice and nits are along the hairline all around the head, the nape of the neck, behind the ears, and the crown on the head. Use a rat-tail comb or pencil-like object to part the hair and look along the scalp for anything moving. A lice clinic is also a good option to have your head professional checked for a small fee. They can also show you how to do a check on your children while you are there.

You may see businesses offering lice cleaning services for the home. They may take your belongings to their facilities or cleaning locations or they may use your washer and dryer. The truth is this is an extremely unnecessary expense that is only recommended when a client is physically unable to do their own laundry or has some time or other type of restriction preventing them from washing their bedding, which is all that is required to eliminate lice from a home. Since lice spread from head to head contact and cannot survive for more than 24-48 hours off a human head and cannot move around easily on anything that isn’t hair, doing a full-house cleaning is overkill. If you want to do more than your bedding, simply vacuuming the head rest areas of furniture, bagging combs, hats, and stuffed animals or blankets that cannot be washed is more than enough.

If it’s stressful for you, it’s an emergency and look for same day professional extermination. If it’s no big deal having bugs on your head, you can wait a few days before seeking treatment because it won’t get significantly worse. Head lice don’t spread disease and are not a urgent health risk. They are an annoyance and proper steps should be taken to prevent spreading them.
