Ventura, CA, January 14, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Head lice remain a very elusive bug to kill or so says Wendy Beck, owner of LiceDoctors Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service, the largest of its kind in the nation. The company has seen meteoric growth over the past few years owing to its ability to stop the critters dead in their tracks. LiceDoctors presently makes house calls in 90 metropolitan areas and has plan to add to those in 2015.
What is the key to their success? According to Beck, "We are the only company with a medical doctor on staff. We have a very long track record of successfully treating clients with our all-natural, step-by-step protocol. Don't kid yourself: experience matters with lice eradication and we have 125,000 clients who will attest to our experience."
Beck explains that the reason that experience is important is that head lice are very fleet of foot. As soon as the hand comes near the head or a light is shined on the hair, the lice run away. Lice do not have wings so if you see a bug fly out of the hair, that is not a louse. In addition, each louse lays up to 10 eggs or nits a day and these nits stick to the follicle and blend in with the hair. According to Beck, this makes finding and extracting the nit a challenge. "Unless you have the proper equipment and the know-how to recognize a nit, which may be very small if recently left in the hair, it will be very difficult to find the nit. What happens is people spend time combing and picking but they leave a few eggs in the hair. This, unfortunately, undermines all the work that they have done. Within 10 days, all nits have matured and opened and the new bugs have emerged. As soon as the baby bugs, called a nymphs, matures they will start to lay eggs. You can see how the cycle builds on itself. Many parents are very aggravated by the time they call us."
Adding to parents' frustration is the lack of efficacy of many chemical lice treatments. As bugs mutate over time, they become increasingly resistant to existing medications. Beck reports, "We have literally seen hundreds of bugs in the heads of kids whose parents treated them the night before with a chemical lice shampoo. Lice are hearty and simply thwart these efforts. The only way to leave the client with nit-free hair is to comb out and hand-pick the nits. If someone has a short cut, question him or her carefully. Nitpicking is a labor-intensive process if you do it right and if you don't do it right, you will end up back where you started."
LiceDoctors employs a copyrighted, all-natural lice treatment protocol developed 20 years ago to correlate with the life cycle of the lice. In this way, they use a multi-pronged approach to killing lice at any stage of the cycle. LiceDoctors fully guarantees that the treatment plan works to eliminate all lice and eggs.

According to Beck, "Clients have told us in no uncertain terms that they prefer in-home services to a salon setting. We are happy to be able to meet their needs by making house calls as this allows clients more flexibility; when a child has been checked and cleared, she can go about her business, without having to hang around the salon for the rest of the family. Of course, parents love that they don't have the hassles associated with getting the kids out of the house and into the car. Also, you can't beat home care for privacy and confidentiality. Who knows who you will run into in a salon?"
