Chances are if someone at your child’s school had uncovered head lice there is good reason to take some precautions for your own child. One great way is to use an All Natural Lice Prevention spray.

The spray is odorless to humans but gives off a smell that is abhorrent to lice and they will stay clear of your child no matter how close her or she gets to a child carrying the itchy little critters. Avoiding the problem as with most things is the best way to deal with it. There is a lot of ways you can figure out to try and avoid head lice but chances are it is much easier to take the preventative measure of getting some of this spray.

Lice Treatments Beat Head Shaving

We have come quite far in our collective management of a lice problem.

These days’ things are a lot better for everyone. There are a lot of products that can easily get rid of lice after a thorough inspection of a child’s head. The most effective way to deal with the problem is no longer simply getting rid of all the hair.

You will be happy to have a kid with a full head of lice free hair.

Boys Can Get Head Lice, Too

For some reason, there’s often a misleading myth that boys with short hair can’t get head lice. If their head is buzzed, it has to be impossible for them to contract it from anyone. But that just isn’t so. Boys can definitely get lice just as easily as girls, no matter how short their hair may be. The length of the hair is not what attracts Lice, per say. Lice lay their eggs close to the scalp to provide warmth for its eggs.Boys Lice


That’s why it is important to get your son checked out for head lice, especially if he was exposed to it in school. The nice thing about short hair is that if he does have it, you’ll be able to spot lice just a bit easier on your own, instead of combing through the long hair of your daughter.


If it does turn out your son has lice, it can be treated easily with the right products. Lice Busters has a variety of lice products to help get rid of lice and get your child head back to school



Humankind’s Fight Against Lice

Lice have been, and continue to be, one of the most common parasitic ailments among humans. Kids ages 3 to 12 are particularly vulnerable. Young girls are the most at risk because of their long hair.

Lice have plagued mankind for thousands of years. Lice were found on the heads of Egyptian mummies and ancient Babylonians. Aristotle complained of lice, though he mistakenly thought they were a disease that springs forth from the body.


Lice infestation was a big problem during WWI with J.R.R Tolkien and C.S Lewis both suffering from lice on the front lines. Unlike head lice, which do not spread disease, the body lice there were prevalent then carried a number of dangerous infections. Some people suspect one in five illnesses on the front line were a result of lice bites. Even today body lice continue to spread disease in areas of the developing world.


Head lice do not communicate any disease but have proved harder to eradicate in the developed world. Some studies even suggest that head lice evolved to not carry diseases so they could not kill us, their human hosts. Today however, lice are a menace. Luckily modern lice remedies can usually stop them dead in their tracks.

Hair Lice Lessons

When we learn about lice in school generally the extent of it is important lessons like not sharing hats and not touching our heads excessively. Little did we know then that our simple proximity in classes and in school in general would ensure that any incident of hair lice in the school could very quickly escalate and make its way onto the vast majority of heads in a given grade.

In my time at school there were even bouts of school wide head lice inspections administered by the school’s own nurses on every child in the school. These inspections made me wonder about a lot of things not the least of which was, if you are searching for lice with the same tools how are those tools not becoming breeding grounds for the lice?


Still there was an element of scared straight-ness to the measures taken to try and stamp out lice in the school. If nothing else it bred an inert awareness of the critters and in general has informed my knowledge about the best and most effective lice treatments available. These days I no longer have the fear of lice I once did since I am aware of how to handle them.
