Baby head lice are known as nymphs. Nymphs are delicate and fragile and share several similarities with premature human babies. For example baby head lice nymphs need to maintain a constant body temperature and frequent meals to survive, just like preemies. The ideal lice nymph body temperature mirrors that of the scalp of an elementary school aged child. Therefore lice nymphs are unable to survive off of the human scalp. In addition the only bugs you will see traveling to a new host are adult pregnant female lice. Because those pregnant females need to begin to set up a new satellite lice colony immediately on a new host to start a successful lice infestation.
Baby head lice might possibly be killed by pesticide lice shampoo. However we now know that it is no longer true that lice shampoo kill lice eggs. Therefore after treatment with pesticides or chemicals, lice eggs remain viable. Hence you cannot kill lice nits with chemical lice shampoo. In addition the lice eggs will go on to hatch and maintain the lice colony. Thus head lice eradication is not guaranteed with the use of pesticide lice treatments.
