Summer Lice Outbreak Massachusetts. First of all, due to the colder than normal spring and the recent warm days, we are seeing a large uptick in lice cases in the greater Boston area. In addition our phones have been ringing off the hook at NitWits!
Normally lice cases increase in the warmer months in New England, however the current spike in cases is arriving early for 2019. In fact the head lice life cycle speeds up in the warmer weather. Therefore lice are able to hatch from their nits in 4-5 days instead of 6-8 days. Furthermore the nymph molting process goes faster, thus lice can breed and lay eggs more rapidly. This means more nits, more lice and more kids with lice in June, July and August!
