Types of Lice

 

Three forms of lice

Three forms of head lice exist: nits, nymphs, and mature adults.

Nits are lice eggs that attach to the hair shaft and usually hatch within a week.

The microscopic eggs are easy to mistake for dandruff or residue from hair styling products.

Once the eggs hatch, lice are known as nymphs, an immature form of the parasite that is grayish tan in color.

After nine to 12 days the nymphs mature into adults, the average size of which is roughly 2–3 millimeters, or about the size of a sesame seed

Where do head lice live?

Where do head lice live?

Head lice feed on blood and therefore stay close to the scalp where there is an abundant supply of food. After the nits hatch, they move from the hair shafts to your scalp to find sustenance.

You’ll find nymph and adult lice most commonly on the scalp around the back of your neck and ears.

They might also live in your eyebrows or on your eyelashes.

When fed, head lice can live for up to a month, but they will die within a day or two if they are not able to feed on blood.

Creepy crawlers

Creepy crawlers

Head lice are insects, but they can’t fly. Instead, they crawl around in your hair and on your scalp to get nourishment. Lice are spread through close personal contact. The parasites crawl onto your clothing, hairbrushes, hats, towels, and any other personal belongings.

If a friend or family member shares your comb or scarf, the head lice can crawl onto the new host and lay eggs, spreading the infestation.

Female head lice can lay several eggs each day. Household pets and other animals do not spread head lice to humans.
