Think like a Louse!

18 June

To beat head lice you have to think like a head louse. ” Hmm… Let’s see. I want to set up an unwelcome colony on a child’s scalp. What’s the best way to do so and remain undetected? 1. Don’t cause any itching, at least not for the first 2 months. 2. Make sure I, and my eggs, are invisible to the human eye. 3. Only stay on scalps, where it is warm and cozy, so I don’t starve or dry up. 4. Invent a special superglue so my eggs stay on the hair shaft, close to the scalp, where it’s nice and warm and they will hatch on schedule.  OK sounds like a great plan!” Yup that’s right folks, head lice are smart. Lice have had thousands of years to outwit humans, and they are still going strong. If you want to get rid of head lice, you need to accept how, and why, they are successful obligate human parasites.
