Lice Lessons

When these creepy crawlies hit your family, it’s not easy to get rid of them. Plus, it can be highly embarrassing! Here are ways to protect your family against lice and the facts about getting rid of them fast.

Louse Calls is here to save the day! Louse Calls is a Florida-based company that specializes in head lice removal services in the comfort and privacy of your own home. This service is available in Central Florida and surrounding areas.

When you contact Louse Calls, they will send a technician to your home within a few hours. The technician will check all family members and remove all lice and nits using their special non-toxic lice treatment mousse, oil and comb. The technician will also educate you on the facts of lice and walk you through the process of efficiently cleaning your house to make sure you don’t have a re-infestation. 

Louse Calls offers a friendly, calming and extremely knowledgeable team of technicians who are truly a godsend to parents dealing with a lice infestation for the first time. Put their contact information in your smart phone because you never know when you’re going to need it: Louse Calls 561-376-1066

I was in a complete panic when I first realized that my whole family had lice. I wanted to crawl out of my skin, and I had no idea where to begin! I texted a friend, and she gave me Louse Calls’ number. I had no idea a service like this even existed. I called and [the owner] Amy immediately put me at ease. She told me that [the technician] Charlotte would be at my house within the hour.
After sharing my experience on Facebook, many of my friends have come forward commenting about how Charlotte also came to their rescue. It was the best money ever spent, and she took care of the problem within a few hours.”

Tips from Louse Calls:

  • DON’T SHARE BRUSHES:Head lice do not fly or jump and are only transmitted through direct head-to-head contact. To avoid re-infestation, remind your children to avoid sharing hairbrushes, hats, jackets, etc. and close hugging with their friends. Using hairspray or a natural spray repellent (tea tree oil and water mixture) will help also.
  • DON’T BE EMBARRASSED: It is a fallacy that head lice like dirty hair. Lice know no boundaries and like to live in a clean environment. Lice can affect anyone. Head lice love that people don’t tell their friends about their infestation. This helps lice continue to thrive and
  • be transmitted back and forth from person to person. 
  • DON’T WASH EVERYTHING: Lice require a human blood source or they die within 24–48 hours. Place items that have been in contact with head lice in a dryer on high heat for 25–39 minutes (no need to wash everything; the heat is what kills lice). Vacuum or use a lint roller on items that can’t be dried. Place hairbrushes and accessories in a sealable bag and put them in the freezer for 48 hours.

Many over-the-counter lice treatments have pesticides and require several treatments, exposing your family to potentially harmful chemicals. The only 100% guarantee to eliminate head lice from your household is to physically remove all lice and nits from the head.
