Aug. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- Schools in Phoenix, Arizona open their doors this month to students, some of whom retun with head lice.  LiceDoctors Head Lice Removal Service advises parents to be vigilant about head lice. The months of August through October are peak months for the incidence of head lice.

According to Wendy Beck, owner of  LiceDoctors, every year as summer camp ends and school begins, there are significant outbreaks of head lice. "This year we are seeing an increase in the incidence of head lice among school age children in Arizona, including the Phoenix and Tucson areas.." states Ms. Beck, who is one of the pioneers in the field of lice professionals.

Ms. Beck , who has treated families with head lice for over 15 years, states each year she  see an increase in the number of cases of head lice. One of the major contributors is  the growing resistance of head lice to the chemical treatments. "Everyday our in-home lice treatment and nit removal service is called to remove nits and live bugs from children who have been treated unsuccessfully with the chemical shampoos." In addition, school nurses check students' heads for head lice when they return to school, often detecting cases that have been festering over the summer. Not everyone has symptons with head lice.

The best way to screen your child for head lice is to take him or her outside in the bright light. While bugs scoot from the light and are difficult to find, the nits (eggs) attach to the hair shaft and have a translucent shell which reflects light in the sun.
