If you’ve heard the term “super lice” floating around, don’t panic just yet. There’s quite a bit of misinformation out there about these buggers, so we’re here to clear things up and educate you on how to handle this specific type of head lice.
What Are Super Lice?
This particular strain of head lice has been reported in roughly half of the states in the country. Like regular lice, they are parasitic and feed off the blood found in people’s scalps, as well as eyelashes and eyebrows. They move from head to head via direct contact – despite their name, there’s no flying or jumping involved. They live for about a month, feeding and reproducing while they live on a host’s body.
How Are They Different from Other Kinds of Head Lice?
In many ways, super lice are almost identical to regular lice. They move from host to host the same way, live just as long, and need just as much blood to survive. However, there is one glaring difference between the two strains – super lice are extremely resistant to over-the-counter treatments. This can make them much more difficult to eradicate the lice.
