What Exactly Are Head Lice?

Head lice surfaced over 100,000 years ago.
And head lice only feed on human blood.

Head lice infestation is a serious condition that infests 6 to 12 million people each year world wide. Despite the fact that these are microscopic bugs that cannot be detected from a far distance, it’s common for people who are infested to have scratching behind their ears, a red rash on the nape of their neck, and actual bugs that can be seen crawling across the forehead.

I have heard frantic mothers on the other end of the phone completely distraught over what they have witnessed on their children’s heads. Lice Medic has been all over NYC and all of its neighboring areas of Queens and Long Island. No matter what area of NY, all of these families share lice experiences.
