As the Dallas Fort Worth area gets hotter, Dallas head lice problems rise. Summer is a time filled with lots of family, friends, and activities. Even though your kids are out of school for the summer, the prevalence of head lice increases during warmer months. Lice Removal for Dallas TX area residents is as unique as our weather in our area.
How Summer Heat Impacts Head Lice
Head lice tend to be even more active during the summer months. And at Lice Lifters we’ve been getting ready for the upswing with our professional lice removal. The reason for this change in activity in head lice infestations has more to do with the fact that kids are out of class and doing more active and interactive things like:
- Summer camps
- Day camps
- Summer classes
- Hanging out with friends
Camps especially put your kids in close proximity with one another so that the likelihood of lice moving from one scalp to the next increases dramatically, in which case you’d need lice treatment.
How to Prevent Head Lice
Be mindful of what you kids take to camps and to sleepovers. Encourage your kids to bring their own pillows and not share brushes or hats with their friends. Since head lice only survive on human scalps, this will dramatically reduce the likelihood of your kids coming home with head lice.
As a parent, be watchful. When your child comes back from overnight event or from spending time at a friend’s house, know that nits are more easy to see in natural light, so feel free to see if you notice any nits on your child’s scalp. Taking that extra moment to look things over could save you and your family from a lice outbreak.
