Woops. Your child has come home from summer camp or vacation with head lice! Soon you’ll discover how many different head lice treatments are available. But, you may not know that the most powerful treatment long-term depends on either locating a professional nit picker or being a proficient nit picker yourself. Various lice treatment shampoos and conditioners can destroy living lice (or bugs), but they do not destroy the nits (or eggs) that bring about re-infestation unless altogether removed. Lice nits (eggs) can survive all kinds of treatment product with inconceivable “stick-to-itiveness” as they are actually fixed with a glue-like adhesive to the hair shaft. Nits will remain viable unless they are manually removed (or picked) from the hair shaft. So, the only absolute method to assure a genuinely effective lice treatment is to call on the services of a professional nit picker such as those employed by Lice Treatment Center LLC (LTC).

Why Call LTC for a Professional Nit Picker?

LTC’s experienced nitpickers will inspect all of the scalp and hair section by section, looking for live lice and nits. If they locate any, they will remove both live bugs and their eggs (or nits) by hand. Being a nitpicker is not an easy job. Nit picking is monotonous, time consuming and needsdemands the patience of a saint with great eyesight! A well-trained nitpicker will take a long time inspecting the scalp looking for lice that have crawled onto the hair from anywhere -another person’s hair, a piece of furniture, shared clothing, hair brushes or any other item used by another infested person. Even though it can be a tiresome process, a good nitpicker will make the difference between effective and non-effective head lice treatment. A great nitpicker will track every last nit possible and get rid of all of them.

Parents may possibly attempt to handle an infestation at first but in the end, just don’t have the days or patience it takes to look for every string of hair and manually remove all the lice and nits. That’s why there are expert nitpickers, such as those technicians from LTC, who will perform that job for them. LTC technicians will do all of the dirty work needed to ensure that all lice and nits are removed. LTC’s professional nitpickers will also recommend the most effective preventive products and practices available to avoid future infestations.

Some parents are extremely horrified to act as a nit picker for their family. Some will even expect giving boys very short cuts or chopping off a girl’s long hair in order to prevent lice. But, meticulous nit picking will still be needed on hair of any length to make sure that no little, super hard to see nits remain attached to the hair shafts. LTC’s professional nit pickers will arrive at the home equipped with magnifying lights that enable them to spot those tiny residual eggs. Even the greatest nit picker wont be able to catch every last microscopic nit within the first treatment, so follow-up care treatment by parents is also important. This involves daily inspecting, oil applications and treatment shampoos, and combing with a special comb must be followed through for at least 7-10 days following a treatment.
