Lice FAQs Answered

The Universe works in mysterious ways. It’s often when we’re alone in the comfort of our home that we wonder what lies beyond the world we know. Do aliens exist? How many planets are there besides the ones we know? Can we really inhabit Mars in the future? How did lice come into being? While science is still in the process of answering the first three questions, it’s the last one that we spend our precious time wondering about. Lice are mysterious critters that seem to attack when we least expect it. They leave us perplexed, never wanting to leave our side. No matter how hard we try, it seems they’re always going to be there, bugging us to no end! But can lice be treated and removed? How does one contract lice? How long have they been around? You probably have tons of questions. And guess what? We’ve got the answers!

Lice Treatment and Lice Removal FAQsQuestion # 1: How Long Can Lice Live?

Lice can live up to 30 days. As long as they have access to human blood, they’ll continue to thrive. But despite having a lifespan of 30 days, they continue to multiply. This means that once a louse dies, it’s quickly replaced by another one. A female louse can lay up to 6 or 7 eggs in a day. The eggs hatch within a week and it takes the nymphs almost 9 days to become adults. The cycle then continues. In a nutshell, you can be dealing with hundreds of critters within a span of 4 weeks!

Question # 2: When Did Lice Come Into Being?

Unfortunately, lice have been around for as long as we have. Researchers have even found Egyptian mummies with head lice! There have been records dating back to 3,100 B.C. that show that the Egyptians were tortured by these pesky parasites and went above and beyond to look for a “cure.”
