Children are the most susceptible to getting head lice. Though it is hard to spread head lice in any way other than head to head contact, it is common for kids to get them. Children often have plenty of room to run around, explore, and learn while at school. However, it is common to see kids playing or working in tight knit groups with their heads pressed together. Lice do not fly or jump, but they do crawl rapidly from head to head when heads are in close proximity. Lice do not discriminate, so hygiene doesn’t usually play a role in who gets head lice. It is impossible to tell where your child might have picked up head lice, so the next best thing you can do is to eradicate the pests as quickly as possible and stop the spread of them among your child’s friends and peers. Early detection makes snuffing out head lice easier and proper screenings are recommended regularly for young children.
One of the first steps we’ll take after being invited into your home will be to screen every member of your household for head lice. Though children are the most susceptible, adults are unfortunately not immune to getting head lice also. A hug or a snuggle with your child might be all that is required for the lice to find a new host…in you. Again, there is no need to panic! We believe that there is no shame and no blame in having head lice, it happens. We will treat every member affected by head lice with the proper care and with our safe and natural treatments while we are in your home. This skill is also something we teach parents so they know what to look for in future screenings.
Our treatments are safe, non-toxic, and 100% effective at eradicating head lice. They will not harm the skin, have no side effects, and are gentle for people of all ages. They are pesticide free and environmentally friendly as well. Our methods are tried, true, and tested.
After we apply our treatment solutions, we will use fine toothed metal lice combs to remove lice eggs (nits), young lice (nymphs), and adult lice from the hair. We will teach you how to use a lice comb as well. This skill is useful for the days after the initial treatment when you will be advised to comb through hair for follow up care. And, in case your child ever gets re-introduced to head lice in the future, you’ll have the practical skills required to handle the problem quickly, efficiently, and on your own.
One of the things we take the most pride in here at Lice Happens is the education we provide all of our clients and the families we help. Knowledge is power. While we’re providing treatments to your loved ones, we’ll answer any questions and address any concerns you may have about head lice. We will also teach you about myths vs. facts that surround head lice, who gets them, how they spread, home care, what they are, hygiene, and many other topics. We will provide you and your family with tips on how to prevent a lice infestation from happening again in the future as well. If you ever do experience a lice infestation again, you’ll know exactly what to do to solve the problem quickly and get back to your normal lives in Delaware!

Delaware is the second smallest state in the United States, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a lot of great things here for families including the many festivals that Delaware has! The Delaware River runs through here and it is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean. There is a lot of history here from the time of the revolution. The state is quite agricultural, though people can find jobs in government, education, banking, pharmaceuticals, technology, healthcare, and retail. There are great colleges here for higher learning.
If you live in Delaware and are seeking natural and private head lice removal and treatment services, call us today. We are available 7 days a week for same day emergency services as well as appointments.
