Is Summer Head Lice Season?

Although head lice can appear at any time of year, there are indeed certain months that seem to fall in the “peak season” of lice infestations. And you’re right, it’s the summer months leading up to a new school year that are especially notorious for head lice. The question is, why?

Sleepovers and Summer Camps

The warm months always bring gatherings of close-knit friends. When kids sleep over at each other’s homes or attend overnight camps, they come in close contact with other children – and potentially their head lice! It’s not uncommon for kids to return from these fun events with a not-fun infestation that needs to be treated ASAP.

New School Year Photos

As children begin back-to-school shopping and attend their first day of class, they’re all going to do one thing: you know it – take selfies with friends. And that means putting heads close together, and unfortunately providing easy access for lice on the move.

Groups of Kids Mixing Together

During the school year, children usually spend time around the same groups of people. But then during the summer, they’re exposed to tons of other kids via camps, theme parks, summer school, and other places. These new adventures can lead to an unexpected lice infestation.

Why Do Kids Get Head Lice?

Adults can get lice just like children, but why is it that young kids are more likely to have infested scalps than their parents? Well, there are a few factors that make children more vulnerable to head lice.

Children Share More Than Adults

When was the last time you swapped hats with someone or borrowed a comb or brush from a co-worker? Kids are constantly sharing clothing, hairbrushes, hats, and other accessories. This provides a perfect mode of transportation for lice. Head lice cannot jump or fly, so don’t worry about that – but they can hitchhike on other objects to move from one person’s head to another.

Kids Attend School in Close Quarters

Young people spend most of their time surrounded by other people their age. Sure, adults sit in offices and travel in small spaces with others, but they still don’t spend as much time surrounded by other people. Your son or daughter comes into constant contact with other kids at school, and this automatically heightens their risk of contracting lice.

Children Attend Camps and Sleepovers

Like school, camps and sleepovers provide the perfect environment for lice. Kids may be borrowing brushes, sleeping in close proximity and so on, which makes it easy for head lice to move to a new scalp. Adults are much less likely to share common sleeping areas with people who aren’t in their immediate family.

Head Lice Infestation: What to Do in Extreme Cases

More often than not, head lice aren’t really a serious problem. They may cause itchiness, discomfort and even embarrassment, but they can usually be wiped out after a simple treatment process. Most people who take action stop dealing with the problem fairly soon after it begins.

Sometimes however, people need to be treated for a severe head lice infestation. This occurs when the problem has gone unattended for too long, and several generations of lice have bred on the person’s scalp. In this case, the head becomes crowded with full-grown lice and their nits, and a simple treatment won’t cut it. The lice will hide and return repeatedly.

In the case of an extreme lice infestation, there’s one thing you must do immediately: Seek professional help. In this case you will need trained technicians to handle the job and truly remove all head lice. In an extreme case, the experts may even recommend shaving the head, then using a follow-up treatment to eradicate the lice for good.

This is the most important thing to remember: All head lice cases should be treated immediately, regardless of how many lice are spotted. You never want the infestation to get out of hand and turn into an extreme infestation.

Lice Lifters Treatment Centers will handle your head lice problem for children or adults, no matter how simple or severe. Their specialized micro-grooved comb-out and all-natural killing agent are extremely effective. Since the killing agent is devoid of toxic chemicals, it’s 100-percent safe for sensitive scalp.

Plus, Lice Lifters will give you an at-home follow-up treatment to eradicate the invaders once and for all. Skip the over-the-counter products and go for the lice removal treatment that actually works. One Quick Treatment. Done! Guaranteed.
