Head lice
This factsheet is for people who have, or whose children have, head lice. Head lice are insects that live on the scalp and neck. They may make your head feel itchy. Although head lice may be embarrassing and occasionally uncomfortable, they don't usually cause illness. However, they won't clear up on their own and should be treated promptly.
What are head lice?
Head lice are wingless insects. They are grey or brown, have six legs and are about 2mm long when fully grown.
Lice lifecycle
Head lice live for about three weeks. The female lays up to six eggs a day, which she attaches to the hair near the scalp. The eggs hatch about eight days later. The unhatched eggs, which are called nits, are a yellow-white colour and are often mistaken for flakes of dry skin or dandruff. Unlike dandruff, nits stick to the hair and are difficult to remove.

Head lice
Head lice affecting the scalp (Pediculosis capitis) is a very common problem, especially in school children. There are various treatments, but whatever approach is used they can be a persistent or recurring nuisance.
The main symptom, if noticed by the individual, is an itchy scalp. This is sometimes especially so behind the ears.
The cause is a tiny insect which lives on the scalp, and feeds by sucking blood through the skin. The head louse grips on to the hair with its six tiny claws. The female lays its eggs (nits) in sacs which are glued to a hair. These take seven to ten days to hatch. The lice then take seven to fourteen days to become mature and ready to reproduce. The total numbers of lice thus rise very quickly. Head lice do not jump, fly, or swim. They spread by direct contact, "walking" from one hair or head to another. They happen in the best circles, and do not mean that you or your child are unclean or dirty , in fact some people say that head lice prefer clean heads.

Caused suffering to the men in the trenches during war and also carried disease. Describes methods used to remove lice.
USA History British History Second World War ... Email
Men in the trenches suffered from lice. One soldier writing after the war described them as "pale fawn in colour, and they left blotchy red bite marks all over the body." They also created a sour; stale smell. Various methods were used to remove the lice. A lighted candle was fairly effective but the skill of burning the lice without burning your clothes was only learnt with practice. Where possible the army arranged for the men to have baths in huge vats of hot water while their clothes were being put through delousing machines. Unfortunately, this rarely worked. A fair proportion of the eggs remained in the clothes and within two or three hours of the clothes being put on again a man's body heat had hatched them out.
As well as causing frenzied scratching, lice also carried disease. This was known as pyrrexhia or trench fever. The first symptoms were shooting pains in the shins and was followed by a very high fever. Although the disease did not kill, it did stop soldiers from fighting and accounted for about 15% of all cases of sickness in the British Army.
(1) Henry Gregory of 119th Machine Gun company was interviewed after the war about life in the trenches.

13. Head Lice Facts
Factsheet with description, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
Head Lice
  • Head lice are parasitic insects that live in the hair and scalp of humans. They need human blood to survive. Head lice are spread easily from person to person by direct contact. Head lice can infest anyone, regardless of personal hygiene. Head lice are usually treatable with lice-killing shampoos and creme rinses. To prevent infection: 1) avoid direct contact with the head, hair, clothing, or personal belongings of a person with head lice, and 2) treat affected persons, their contacts, and their households.
What are head lice? Head lice are parasitic insects that live in the hair and scalp of humans. The scientific name for head louse is Pediculus humanus capitis . Another name for infestation with head lice is pediculosis. Head lice develop in three forms: nits, nymphs, and adults. Nits: Nits are head lice eggs. They are hard to see and are often mistaken for dandruff or droplets of hairspray. Nits are found firmly attached to the hair shaft. They are oval and usually yellow to white. Nits take about 1 week to hatch. Nymphs: Nits hatch into nymphs. Nymphs are immature adult head lice. Nymphs mature into adults about 7 days after hatching. To live, nymphs must feed on blood.

HEAD lice INFORMATION statement from Richard J. Pollack, PhD Head lice Information and Frequently Asked Questions

Fact sheet from Clemson University describes head lice, with prevention andcontrol methods.
HGIC 2503 Head Lice Three kinds of lice can infest humans - head lice ( Pediculus capitis ), body lice ( P. humanus ) and crab (or pubic) lice ( Phthirus pubis ). The head louse is closely related to the body louse, but their behavior is quite different. Experts disagree on whether or not these two insects are different species. They look nearly identical. However, the head louse stays on a person for its entire life, while the body louse lives in the seams of clothing and is only found on a person when feeding. The body louse is very rare, occurring in unsanitary, crowded conditions, where people wear the same clothing for many days. Crab (or pubic) lice are usually transferred from one individual to another through intimate contact, but occasionally can be transferred in other ways. Head lice are the most common louse problem in the United States. They are easily spread by physical contact and infestations can occur under the best sanitary conditions. Every year, 6 to 10 million people in the United States have head lice with three-quarters of them being school children less than 12 years old. Girls typically have higher rates of infestation than boys do. However, having shorter hair does not prevent or eliminate infestations. Income level is not a factor in infestation. If one family member is infested with head lice, the risk of infestation for the rest of the family is greater. Usually Caucasians have more problems with head lice due to the shape of the individual hair shaft.

Lice Overview
Lice infestation on the human body (also known as pediculosis) is very common. Cases number in the hundreds of millions worldwide. Certain lice, such as body lice, can transmit diseases, such as typhus, relapsing fever, and trench fever, but most of the time having lice is more embarrassing and itchy than it is concerning as a disease. Lice die if they are away from a human's head or body for more than 2 days. Lice are 1-3 mm long (about the size of a sesame seed) and cling to the hair shaft. During the life cycle of lice , the female louse lays eggs, called nits, that attach to the hair shaft close to the scalp or body. These nits , which resemble dandruff, are attached with a gluelike, water-insoluble substance that makes them difficult to remove. After 6-10 days, the nits hatch as nymphs and become adults in 10 days. Adult lice live about 30 days on their human hosts. Three different types of lice infest people:
  • Head lice Pediculus humanus capitis ): Head lice are the most common. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 6-12 million people in the United States are infested each year with head lice.
