Scabies and Lice Information

Although Scabies and Lice are not really a pest control issue, alot of times a pest control person will get questions or be sought out for advice. The issue is most times resolved very easily through your family doctor who will prescribe a cream or shampoo to apply. There are, however, some things that must be done on the side of the individual to protect him or her self and their family members. The bed where the infected person sleeps should be vacuumed and all the bedding stripped and laundered. I would suggest tossing the pillow and buying new. Vacuum sofas and be sure to launder hats and clothing that the person wears regularly. There are sprays that you can get, but if you are diligent with your cleaning and using the products your doctor suggests you should be fine.

We get people inquiring about these problems. It needs to be known that it is a medical issue. Period
