Children at camp tend to have physical contact and that is how lice are spread. Activities such as gymnastics are common culprits. In addition, exuberant campers hug eachother during competitive sports and inadvertantly allow an undetected bug to move from head to head.
Lice have changed and become a lot heartier and are no longer vulnerable to chemical lice treatments that formerly were effective. According to Beck, who has nearly 20 years experience in the lice field, these resistant head lice are called 'super lice' and getting rid of the bugs and nits is difficult to do unless you are trained. The nits stick to the hair shaft with glue and must be physically extracted. These nits camouflage so may be hard to see for the untrained eye. If you overlook a couple of nits, they will hatch and your case will continue,"
According to Beck, one of the pioneers in the professional head lice service industry who has spoken on the subject around the country, "LiceDoctors is proud of our track record. We have treated over 110,000 people and have a 99.9% success rate. We have an 'A' rating with the Better Business Bureau."
LiceDoctors is a national head lice removal service. Connecticut is the home to many overnight as well as day camps. As one Hartford mom reports, "Every kid on our block goes to summer camp. The other parents and I were discussing how we feel like our block is one big lice festival. Every other day, a kids shows up with head lice."
