Can Lice Survive the Cold Winter?

As a parent in Bucks County, the severe winters we can get definitely have their downsides. High home heating bills and trouble driving on roads to pick up or drop off your kids at various places when it snows are just a couple problems that come to mind. One problem that you may think you’d be spared in the winter months is that of certain bugs such as head lice. Unfortunately, these tiny, parasitic insects are a year-round annoyance.

One of the reasons that they still persist through the winter months is that lice like to cling to the scalp under your hair. This is a warm place regardless of the temperature outside. Your kids are especially likely to catch these bugs that like to feed off the blood under the scalp since they can spread through physical contact, and your kids always seem to be roughhousing with other kids. Another way they can catch them is by sharing hats or using hairbrushes of an infested person.

 

What Should You Do About Head Lice Removal?

It’s easy enough to Google pictures of head lice and their eggs, which are called nits. Let’s say you think you recognize some near the scalp of one of your children, or maybe a school nurse has spotted them and brought the problem to your attention. What to do about them is the next issue at hand.

You may be thinking about home remedies or over-the-counter products, but if this is the case, you need to think harder. As a problem, head lice are pretty bad, but some home remedies are so involved, they can seem even worse. If that’s not bad enough, they’re also not effective, which is the same thing that can be said about retail products that have been used for so many years that most lice have grown immune to the toxins in them. Your best course of action will be to find a professional head lice treatment salon.
