Maybe you’ve heard news reports or parents talking about super lice. A case of regular head lice is bad enough, now what are these super lice people are talking about?

Just like antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria, super lice are a class of lice that have become resistant to the chemicals and pesticides that have been designed to treat them. How did this happen? The overuse and misuse of these chemicals have given lice the opportunity to develop an immunity and a resistance that former “regular lice” didn’t have. As a result, they have mutated into what are now known as “super lice,” because they don’t respond to chemical treatments.

Sounds like a nightmare, right?

While parents should be concerned about super lice, the truth is, they aren’t that different from regular lice. They spread in the same way—by head to head contact or the sharing of personal items, and they tend to cause the same symptoms and reactions—itchy scalp, red patches and irritability.

What most parents don’t know is that even regular lice have been showing resistance to the drugstore methods many parents typically use to treat them. Though these products often promise total effectiveness, the truth is they leave a lot of bugs and nits behind. This, in turn, re-launches the infestation and helps to enforce resistance.

It is for this reason, in addition to the harsh potential side effects, that we don’t recommend chemical treatments for getting rid of head lice. They don’t work, they pose a health risk, and they make the bugs stronger. Bad combination.

If chemicals and pesticide treatments don’t work, then what’s the best super lice treatment?

At Lice Troopers, we approach cases of super lice in the exact same manner that we approach regular lice. Since we aren’t trying to kill the bugs, we don’t need to continually look for a stronger potion. Instead, we take the safe, pesticide free approach and we remove the bugs and their nits. The super louse doesn’t need to be killed off; it simply needs to be removed.

No one handles the job like our expert technicians. They are trained to spot and remove these bugs, meticulously working through the hair until every single one has been removed. No stress, no hassle, no mess, no wasted money. Just pure relief in knowing that the problem has been taken care of.
