Lice Facts

  • Lice are more annoying than they are dangerous.
  • Lice do not spread diseases.
  • Contrary to popular belief, hygiene has nothing to do with head lice and nits.
  • At worst, the bites may cause your scalp to become itchy and persistent scratching may lead to skin irritation or infection.
  • Never assume a pesticide is safe. Anything designed to disrupt a living organism - plant or animal - may also prove harmful to humans or other animals in unexpected ways.
