Treatment of Lice
Over time, some lice can build up immunities to particular chemicals (insecticides and pesticides), so it may be best to try some natural brands first to see if they do the trick. It is suggested that if you are treating a large area/population for lice regularly each year that pesticides are rotated so it takes lice longer to build up immunity. To make sure the treatment of all lice is applied effectively, you may be required to more than one/two applications stretched over a fort-night, as many products are only capable of targeting the adult lice and not the nits/eggs. As nits/eggs take around 7-10 days to hatch, a follow-up application of the treatment should be employed around 12-14 days later. Procedures for treatment of lice could include, drowning them, 'smothering' them, spraying them, picking them or squashing them. However, caution should always be taken when applying a lice treatment or remedy on pregnant or breast-feeding women and young children, as some treatments simply aren't suitable.
The best way to deal with lice is to try to prevent them infecting you in the first place. There aren't any products that can guarantee 100% that you will not catch lice (such as repellents) but if you learn about what they are, where they're found and how they're caught you may have a better chance of avoiding them altogether. If you need a treatment for a wood louse, book louse, dog louse, cat louse or sea louse infection there are specific pages on our homepage that should have advert links to the appropriate products. General good sanitisation will definitely help - it may not stop lice, as they don't care if somewhere is clean or dirty, but by regularly cleaning and grooming you will have a better chance of spotting a louse infestation before it gets out of hand.
