LiceDoctors Reports Spike in Number of Lice Cases in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach, Florida

LiceDoctors Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service reports that it is seeing a significant rise in the incidence of head lice in Florida, particularly in Miami, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. According to owner, Wendy Beck, "Warmer weather areas generally reflect higher incidences of head lice due to increased socializing among children; lice are generally conveyed through head to head contact. We are seeing a particularly high incidence of head lice in Florida right now."

Miami, FL, February 17, 2017 --( Head lice, always a headache for parents, is plaguing families in Miami, Broward, and Palm Beach counties in Florida according to LiceDoctors Lice Treatment and Nit Removal Service. The company reports that it has received several calls from this area from frustrated parents looking for a solution to their problem. LiceDoctors is a national lice removal service that makes house calls to families in several areas of Florida.

According LiceDoctors owner, Wendy Beck, "Occasionally, we receive a disproportionate number of calls from a particular area. This is happening now in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach areas. The cases usually begin with a couple of children who come to school or go to a friend's house and probably do not even know that they have head lice. Because lice are so contagious, within a couple of weeks, there could be several cases in a given area. Unfortunately, parents often waste time and money on chemicals that do not work. By the time, they get to us, they have spun their wheels and are frustrated."

Beck reports that it is important to break the cycle so that families can resume their normal activities. "A recent study by Dr. Yoon at Southern Illinois University bears out what we have seen for over 20 years. Lice are resistant to chemicals; these lice are called 'super lice' and the best way to eradicate them is to bring in a professional who can find and identify them and their eggs, and eradicate the case. That is what we have done successfully in nearly 300,000 cases."

Janet L, a parent with four school age children, is one such example. "I received the call that I had dreaded for years; the nurse told me that my daughter had lice. I consider myself one of the lucky ones. I called my friend who had gone through this and she told me to avoid 'lice hell' and just call LiceDoctors. She had spent 2 horrible months trying and failing to get rid the lice in her family. I called LiceDoctors and an hour later, they were at my house at work and 3 hours after that we were all clear. Best money I have spent."

LiceDoctors has been treating families with head lice for many years and has eradicate lice in nearly 300,000 clients. Technicians make house calls and use a safe, effective, and all-natural protocol that includes meticulous handpicking to get out the lice and nits. LiceDoctors is Florida's only lice treatment service with a physician on-staff.

LiceDoctors makes house calls in Florida in Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Miami, Palm Beach, Naples, Orlando, Panhandle and Tallahassee, Sarasota, Tampa, and Port St. Lucie and the Treasure Coast. The company has an "A" rating with the Better Business Bureau.
