2. What color are head lice?

Head lice are clear when they are alive, which is what makes them so difficult to see. When head lice die they turn brown.

3. How long is head lice incubation?

Head lice incubate inside the lice egg, or nit, for 6-8 days.

4. What are the symptoms of lice in hair?

Most people have no symptoms when they have lice. A small minority of people develop an itchy scalp, but only after about 3 months of their lice infestation.

How Long Can Head Lice Live on a Couch?

How Long Can Head Lice Live on a Couch?

Are you spending a great deal of time cleaning your linens, carpets, couches and house? In fact, house-cleaning will not make any difference in terms of head lice eradication in 2020. Parents confuse head lice with other parasites that in fact do exist in linens, carpets and couches. Examples of these other parasites include, bedbugs, fleas and body lice. However your family does not have bedbugs, fleas or body lice. Therefore cleaning of your house and its contents is not necessary to remove head lice.

Treating Lice Naturally. In fact the primary means of transmission for head lice is head to head contact. Hence lice are very reluctant to leave a warm, food filled human scalp to travel to bed linens. Because there is a high likelihood that the lice would starve, become too cold to move, or not be able to return to their food source (the human scalp). Because, since humans are mobile and constantly moving around, there is a good likelihood that their food source scalp will be gone when they try to return to that scalp.

First of all head lice need to feed every 2-4 hours, and more frequently when they are nymphs. Furthermore the only food head lice can survive on is human blood. And human blood from a human scalp. Scalp skin is different from skin on other parts of the body. Because the scalp contains more blood vessels that are closer to the surface than other types of skin. In addition the mouth parts of the head louse are highly specialized to pierce and to extract blood from human scalp skin. Therefore head lice do not seek out pillows and sheets as a destination.

Treating Lice Naturally. Remember, head lice are specific to humans. They have adapted quite well to the unique environment of your child’s hair. And, the entire 30-day life cycle—feeding, breeding, egg laying, and maturing—all occurs with a 1/8 of an inch of surface of the human scalp. Any farther away from the scalp and the lice and nits will be the wrong temperature to be able to mature and survive.

The Lice Life Cycle:
To better understand hair lice and how they thrive, let’s take a look at a typical 30-day lifecycle. During the 30-day period of time a female louse can lay 10 eggs a day for 10 days. The eggs are attached to the hair shaft with a sticky substance that effectively keeps the eggs on the hair shaft near the scalp. Eggs, known as nits, are enjoying the perfect temperature to incubate until hatching in about 7 days.

Treating Lice Naturally. In the next phase, the baby louse, or nymph, matures through a series of molts that take place within a 10-day period. Once mature, the louse will mate and begin laying her own eggs, continuing the cycle. The majority of people who get lice never have itching  symptoms. Therefore your child could have lice for months and not know it.

This is why combing hair is so critically important—you must remove the nits with a comb in order to stop the lifecycle. If you simply treat the live lice, the cycle will continue once the new eggs hatch.
