How Come Kids Have more Lice than Adults?

08 May

We see a significant increase in head lice in elementary school aged kids, especially girls between 1st and 6th grade.  Why?  These kids have much more hair than adults so the temperature on their scalps is a tiny bit warmer.  We know that head lice are temperature, humidity and light sensitive.  Also the behavior of elementary school aged kids, especially girls, is very cuddly.  This gives head lice enough time to walk from one warm scalp to another.  Also current Head Lice Removal Treatment options are not effective, giving head lice even more opportunity to infest future hosts.shutterstock_17243026
