The time to have your child checked for head lice is when you first suspect that he or she may have been exposed.

Perhaps you received a note from school alerting you that one of your children’s classmates has been treated or you heard about an infestation from another parent. Many parents will assume that if they don’t see their kids scratching their heads or complaining of itchiness, they’re in the clear.

Unfortunately this isn’t exactly how it works. A child may have an infestation well underway before physical signs manifest. That means he or she could be potentially exposing others (such as the rest of your household) for days or even weeks before you pick up on the hints that you have a problem on your hands.

Many parents will do a home screening themselves, searching for evidence of the bugs and nits. This is a good thing to do, of course, and as the bugs are about the size of a sesame seed, they are usually visible. However, especially in the case of a new infestation, you may not be able to find them. There may only be a few well-disguised bugs or nits. As most parents are not trained to search for and spot the bugs, or to distinguish nits from dandruff or other debris, an infestation may go overlooked.

The easiest way to handle the problem and to keep it from becoming a bigger problem, is to schedule a professional screening. If no bugs or nits are found, congratulations, you’re lice free! If they are found, then you can set up an pesticide free treatment immediately—no hassle, no endless experimentation with drugstore brands. Just one safe, effective, guaranteed treatment.
