I called at 8am and Lex was there by 10, everyone got checked and lice removed by noon. It was so convenience to have everyone at home so I could do laundry, send emails, and keep siblings entertained while Lex worked. She was also very informative and helped us understand how to handle and prevent lice infestations. Would totally use them again!read more

Holy hannah, Lex is a LIFESAVER! Here are the top 5 reasons why I love her and this company!1. She is prompt with her communication. She emailed me back at 11pm the night I messaged her to set up an appointment, and she was able to get us in for a next day appointment!2. She saved us hours and hours of lost time at a lice clinic! I was able to cook, clean and carry on life while she worked on our family.3. She is *extremely* knowledgable about lice and gave us amazing research-based advice about how to clean the house and prevent future outbreaks.4. She stays true to her word of 30-day guarantee! Unfortunately, we suffered a second lice outbreak within the 30 days, and she came back to help us out free-of-charge. (We have since narrowed down the issue to our gym's daycare so we are officially pulling our kids from this program! Ugh!)5. We successfully used our HSA account to cover the cost!read more

Lex was super friendly and professional. This was a hard experience for my foster kids, but she made it better. She was easy to schedule with and very educated and understanding with my concerns. Having her in my home was easier than going to a salon, making it easier to care for my traumatized kiddos. She showed them compassion and respect. I am completely happy with our experience.read more

So friendly and convenient!! Lex knows her stuff and is so thorough. Anyone that has ever dealt with lice time and time again knows how time consuming it can be. She allowed me time away from dealing with the tedious treatment and combing to continue on with my endless parental responsibilities and for that I am endlessly grateful!read more

I always had this idea in my head that if my kids ever got lice that I would be able to take care of it myself. Trust me: you can, but you don’t want to. Your time and sanity and piece of mind is worth more than that. You love yourself more than that. Why do you work so hard and make decent money if you can’t spend it on those things that truly make your life better? Things like a quiet weekend on the coast, high octane fuel for your car, name brand sliced cheese.Picture this: your child starts scratching the back of their head, during dinner and ON A SCHOOL NIGHT. “Oh no”, you think to yourself. Please no. Not this, not now, the new season of Bob’s Burgers just started and you’ve got 3 episodes burning a hole in your DVR. You’ve already chilled the Chardonnay and you can practically feel the freedom associated with stepping out of the work “undergarments” and into your jammies and the quiet of comfort of the “post-kids-bedtime”.You reluctantly part the hair on the back of their head, the way the heroine in the slasher film may pull back the drapes to reveal the horrors behind. And, of course, it’s lice. And not just a few. Those parasites have been having a 3 week bender on your kids’ head and they’ve pulled permits to start building gated communities.You remember what happened last time they got lice? Yeeeeah. Hours bent over their greasy heads, in low light while they squirm and complain about the hair pulling. Load after load of laundry. The itching of your own scalp... “do I have it? Is it psychosomatic? Both?” Your heart sinks, the dreams of jammies and a solid Chardonnay buzz fading quickly.But hey! Don’t worry! You can still get your drink on AND get those kids in bed on time! We called Lex with Lice Charmers and she was in our house within one hour reassuring us, picking nits and bugs and we were lice free in time for bed. That Chardonnay tasted amazing.They are very professional, they are fast, courteous, clean and kind.You owe it to yourself and your children to get this taken care of TODAY. It’s worth every penny. I will call them every time from now on. #licecharmersforliferead more

After discovering a single tiny bug on one of my kids while on vacation, I immediately went into crazed action. Said child was treated and all of us were meticulously checked. Ongoing checks for more bugs continued daily. 8 days of and nits were found on all 3 kids. Probably me too since I have little faith in my husbands lice/nit finding skills. All of us were treated. Days of checking and sure enough more nits on one child. I was at my whits end. I called a company that our pediatrician recommended that has a local office. They were polite on phone but said they assign one tech to our family to screen and treat each member 1.5 hrs for average treatment. There are 4 of us!!! That just wasn’t reasonable with young kids that have set schedules I.e. meals, baths bedtime. I booked since I didn’t feel I had many options. After trying to figure out how to make that long appointment work for us, I decided to do some research. I found Lice Charmers just searching online. They didn’t have many reviews but the ones they had were all good. They are mobile, they come to your home to screen and treat in an unmarked vehicle. Lex was so friendly and efficient. She had us all throughly screen and 1 treatment in under 2 hours. We were able to maintain our normal routine and have the green light to live normally with no fear of a return. I wish I used her first before using OTC toxic chemicals on my kids heads. This company will be my go to if we ever have to deal with these annoying bugs again.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.
