A louse, many lice!

So now that we have gone through our second round of lice in our house, we have learned a lot. First is first, lice is not a sign of uncleanliness or lack of hygene. You cross someone who has lice and one can either crawl to you or a 'nit' (an egg) gets attached to you hair or clothing. A louse can lay many eggs on or near the scalp and the hatching time is about 7 days. A louse cannot live without a host for around 24 hours. So no fear! It's a part of life, deal with it and then move on!
