Jumping Head Lice

17 March

Can head lice jump from one head to another? No. Head lice do not jump. In fact head lice have no hind legs to jump with like grasshoppers or fleas.  Head lice have 6 legs near the front of their body, close to their head. These legs are perfectly engineered to allow head lice to move swiftly and adeptly through the human hair. Head lice legs include a curved claw that clasps the human hair shaft, so lice can hang on when you brush your hair, remove clothing or hats, or go swimming.  No wonder lice are thriving in 2015! Plus there’s plenty of confusion about the best head lice removal treatment, which allow lice to continue to proliferateScreen Shot 2014-05-02 at 11.17.36 AM
