Over the past several years, lice have undergone mutations and often are highly resistant to chemical lice treatments that previously were effective in killing head lice. In addition, some of the more potent lice killing agents have been removed from pediculocides owing to their potentially carcinogenic effects. "We have treated thousands of cases of families over the past 18 years who have used the chemical shampoos and still see live bugs in their hair. These resistant head lice carry the name 'super lice'. To eliminate these eggs (nits) is a labor-intensive task unless you are trained. The nits glue themselves to the strands of hair and must be pulled out. The eggs are quite small and are have a clear shell which allows them to blend in with the hair color making them hard to see for the untrained eye. Often people think that they have gotten out all of the nits, when really a few are left behind to hatch and then the case just continues.", Beck explains.
