New Jersey Head Lice Treatment

The Life Span of Lice

Each female louse produces three to five nits per day, which hatch into nymphs within a week. The nymphs then become mature lice and proceed to lay more nits. The entire cycle takes approximately two weeks.

These nits are easy to miss when relying on chemical or home remedies.  This means that, even if all the live lice are killed, the life cycle may continue. At Lice Be Gone, we take the time to remove each and every louse and nit during just one lice removal session.

How Lice Survive?

Lice need to live on the scalp of a human host in order to survive. They cling to your hair follicles using claws on the ends of their legs, then lay their nits near your scalp. Without a human host, the insects die within 24 to 48 hours.
