Why Do You Recommend Using A Mint Spray?
Mint is an offensive odor to lice, making the hair a less desirable environment. Our mint spray is also great for your hair and is a terrific detangler.
What is The Difference Between Head, Pubic or Body Lice, and Bedbugs?
These are all types of lice.
- Head Lice: Head lice live only on the head; including, eyebrows, beard, or eyelashes. They do not travel to other parts of the body.
- Body Lice: The body louse looks similar to the head louse, but is slightly larger. It lives in clothing (commonly in the seamed areas) and then transfers to the human host to feed. While the life cycle of the head louse and the body louse are similar in character and duration, an important difference is the ability of the body louse to survive for up to 30 days away from its human host. Body-lice infestation is a prominent public-health problem in communities with large populations dealing with poverty, overcrowding, and poor personal hygiene. Reused mattresses and bed linens, as well as communal beds, are risk factors.
- Pubic Lice: The pubic louse (“crab louse”) is somewhat rounded with three pairs of legs on either side of the body and it looks like a crab. The female lifespan is three weeks, and she produces fewer eggs per day (three) than her counterparts. The eggs attach to the base of the pubic hair shaft for approximately six to eight days before hatching.
- Bedbugs: Bedbugs hide among sheets, blankets, and in furniture and really do bite during the night when they seek a warm body for a meal. They usually leave brown or black markings on the bed linens and bite in rows, often leaving three or more linear bite marks.
Why Do You Like the Terminator Comb?
The Terminator’s micro-grooved design in a spiral form and the length and width of its prongs makes combing easier to grab the lice and nits! The end result of combing with the Terminator is less time than manually picking and a greater success rate upon completion.
