Do we have Super Lice?

09 May

Super Lice are the same head lice that we have always had in North America for decades. In the 1950s and 1960s DDT was used as a head lice removal treatment. DDT was very effective. When DDT was banned, pyrethrin, permethrin, malathion and lindane were used to treat head lice. At first these agricultural neurotoxic pesticides were an effective head lice treatment. However, in the past 20 years, head lice have successfully developed resistance to all of these newer pesticidal lice shampoos. Now we call them Super Lice, but they are really just well adapted, successful, obligate human parasites. www.liceinfo.net 617-816-9487
