How Do You Find Out If You Really Have Head Lice?
In order to tell for sure that a person has lice, you need to look very closely through the hair with good lighting and visually look for Eggs, Nymphs, or Adult lice. Locating an adult or nymph can be very difficult since they quickly move out of the way of searching fingers. A lice infestation is normally diagnosed through a trained professional like our Slug Buggers or another trained individual who is very familiar with the parasite and the signs of an infestation. At Slug Bug Lice Removal we look for the tell tail signs of eggs or nits which are cemented to the hair shaft, and of course the actual sighting of a nymph or adult insect. If you are unsure if you have found a nit, eggs, nymph or adult lice or louse, take a good clear picture and email it to us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you with our findings.
