Hatching Lice Eggs produce lice nymphs. Head lice lay their eggs on human hair within 2 centimeters of the human scalp. In fact Lice incubation takes 7 days. The nits need the heat of the scalp to incubate properly so that they can hatch and become lice. However you are unlikely to ever see a live adult head louse because lice are clear like a jellyfish when they are alive. Therefore you can look right through them. A nit is the egg of a louse and nits look like small sesame seeds. All nits are the same size and shape and difficult to see upon visual inspection.
