ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Feb. 1, 2021 - PRLog -- Despite kids staying around home more during Covid times, families in the Albuquerque area are dealing with head lice infestations. As children spend a bit more time with other children, lice have the opportunity to spread. According to Wendy Beck, owner of LiceDoctors lice removal service, head to head contact is the primary mode of spreading head lice.

Head lice have been exposed to chemical lice treatments, such as pyrethroids, for so long that they often develop an immunity. These resistant lice are called super lice and they have been around for a long time. Last year a biologist Kyong Yoon, an assistant professor at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, released findings that showed that super lice are in almost every state including Minnesota. According to Dr. Yoon, "We found out that the frequency was 98.3 percent," Yoon said. "I think it's pretty much clear that resistance … it's everywhere in the United States." The results of the study were published in the Journal of Medical Entomology.

What is a parent to do when his or her child comes home with head lice? While the inclination may be to run to the drug store, Beck has a better solution, "LiceDoctors makes house calls and we have effectively eliminated head lice in over 500,000 clients with no side effects...ever! We have a medical doctor on staff and all of our technicians use chemical-free lice treatments that ensure that the lice case is defeated.

Head lice plague a reported 12 million children annually. Beck adds, "We always tell parents that it's the head not the house that needs treatment. Don't waste time cleaning and vacuuming and bagging because lice and only survive one day off the host."
