What are nits?

07 April

Nits are lice eggs.  All nits are the same size. They incubate for 7 days and upon hatching go through 3 molts to reach full adulthood.  The female louse lays 6 eggs a day until she has laid 100 eggs and then she dies. www.liceinfo.net

    Thank you for your question Trina Gentry The baby louse, or nymph must go through 3 molts, so it takes about 10 days to reach maturity to reproduce. Then the female louse mates once and produces 6 eggs a day until she has laid about 100 eggs.
