The Hidden Costs Of Head Lice!

Want to know something really great about head lice? There’s nothing great about them. There’s nothing desirable about a head lice infestation, least of all the hidden cost attached to it. You may be aware of all the dangers a lice breakout has, but what you might not know is that the issue goes beyond compromised hygiene. The cost associated with lice removal doesn’t simply mean the cost of getting treatment but actually includes a number of other factors that you might not even realize you were paying for. Although professional head lice eradication services might seem like an additional burden on your wallet, it’s the only way to ensure you don’t deal with repeat infestations which cost more than double the cost of hiring expert help. This post will highlight three easily-overlooked but financially draining aspects, or the hidden costs of head lice infestations you need to be aware of. Cost of Hiring A Babysitter

Cost of Hiring A Babysitter

One of the biggest reasons children miss school is a head lice outbreak. It is notoriously easy to spread and usually doesn’t have any symptoms. This means that you could be in office one moment and the next thing you know you’re getting a call from your child’s school or daycare that they’ve been scratching their head too much lately. The culprit? A head lice infestation. Most educational institutes demand the concerned students be picked up immediately leaving parents little choice but to hire a nanny or babysitter to mind their children for the remainder of the day. Spur-of-the-moment-hires such as these are not easy on the wallet. If the infestation continues for days, even weeks, the cost could easily accrue up to a couple hundred dollars!

Purchasing New, Parasite-Free Stuff

A professional home inspection and lice cleaning service is mandatory to have a completely lice-free head and home. Unfortunately, sometimes this means getting rid of certain household items and purchasing brand-new ones. Such items commonly include bed sheets, towels and pillow covers which are repeatedly used by infested people several times a day. To ensure that you don’t cost yourself perfectly good linens and sheets, it’s best to hire a reputable lice removal service near you. The inspection staff at Lice Troopers ensures that they not only thoroughly clean your furniture, rugs, carpets, and bedding but also assist in disposing items that are too severely infested.


Although head lice can spread rapidly, they can’t last more than 24 hours in a no-scalp environment. So, it’s not possible for an infestation to move from an affected person’s scalp to your clothes or house furniture. Unaware of this, many people rack up huge bills for costly dry-cleaning services in an ill-informed attempt to remove an all-out infestation.
