Can Lice Survive the Florida Freeze?

Many insects seem to go dormant or disappear when cold weather comes around. This is particularly true of outdoor insects like mosquitoes and other common pests. There are some annoying bugs that are not deterred by cold weather, and head lice is an example of these. As long as they have one warm head to nest in and a scalp to feed off of, they won’t have to care what the temperature outside is.

As a parent in Florida, you may think the spreading of head lice can’t happen in the winter months. You’d be wrong. While the covering of exposed heads with hats may reduce the chances of infestation, they can still occur. In fact, while the wearing of hats may reduce head-to-head contact, it might actually increase the spread of lice in the form of your kid trying on the hat of an infested person or even taking their hat off a clothing hook that had an infested person’s hat on it earlier.

 

What to Do About Head Lice

If you believe any member of your family may have head lice, you should find an effective lice removal remedy as soon as possible. While lice are not known to transmit disease, they are still very uncomfortable. Your kids can get an itchy, red, irritated scalp from them, which can develop open sores if they scratch it too much.

If you have not previously run into the problem of head lice as a parent, you might not have a clue how to proceed. You’ll see products on store shelves that say they handle the problem, but the toxins in these products have been used for so many years that most lice today have grown immune to them. Your best bet for effective lice removal will be to find a lice clinic in your area.
