Lice and School

School days have begun for most children and that brings with it the threat of lice. Lice is easily spread from child to child by close contact and sharing stuffed animals and hats. Lice is typically not a pest control issue and when this problem presents itself in a classroom there would be immediate notification to the parents so that the process of treatment can begin. The process of treatment for the home should include the washing of bedding and hats and coats. The vacuuming of the sofa areas and placing stuffed animals in a ties up trash bag for a week to kill off the lice. They need the host to survive and when not on the host dies off pretty quickly. There are several lice treatments for the body on the market today and after these procedures are followed then the issue goes away.
