The Facts of Lice
Teach your child to avoid sharing things such as: hair brushes, head phones, hats, combs, scarfs, towels, helmets, etc.
Make sure your child hangs coat up on an individual hook, instead of throwing into a pile with other classmates' clothing. We also recommend putting the jacket in backpack if possible.
Long hair should be worn back or up every day. "A pony tail is good, a braid is better, but a bun is the best." All hair up off the neck and shoulders. This can reduce your risk of getting LICE by 80%.
Regularly clean things that your child's head has had direct contact with, such as car seats, pillows, head phones etc.

An adult louse is about the size of a sesame seed, has six legs, Is usually clear, almost invisible to our eye, until it feeds, then it can appear as a tan, grayish-clear, or even sometimes appear black in color. It cannot jump or fly. The female can lay several eggs a day. Eggs are called nits. Nits can vary in color, sometimes appearing whitish-gray, or even black. Nits are hardest to spot on strawberry blonde, or brown/blonde or gray hair. They can be easily missed on a "dry check". An adult louse can live approximately 1 month.
Adult Lice need to feed on blood several times daily. Without blood meals, the louse will die within 2 days off the human host.
When the eggs hatches it releases a nymph. It looks like the adult, but is about the size of a pin head.
