Jeffrey Hahn, University of Minnesota Extension Service
Head lice (Pediculus humanus capitis) feed on blood, primarily on the heads of children. Infestation by head lice is called pediculosis. Fortunately, they do not transmit disease, although their presence can be very bothersome. These lice inject a saliva into their hosts as they feed to prevent the blood from clotting. This results in itching which at best is annoying and at worst can result in infection if scratched too vigorously. Anyone can become infested; the presence of head lice is not the result of unclean conditions.
Photo by Department of Entomology Adult head lice are about 1/8 inch long, grayish, flattened, and wingless. Their legs are claw-like, designed to hold onto hair. These lice excrete partially digested blood which can appear as 'black dandruff'. Lice eggs, commonly referred to as nits, are whitish, oval and the size of a pinhead (1/30 inch long). They are attached to hair near the scalp. Nits that are found further than 1/2 inch from the scalp nearly always have hatched or died.
Head lice live in very close association with humans, especially on young children. They are found on heads where they take daily blood meals. Head lice cling to hair shafts near the scalp. Adult females glue eggs on hair shafts close to the scalp, usually behind the ears and on the nape of the neck. Eggs hatch after 5 to 10 days. Young head lice (called nymphs) are mobile and molt three times, developing into mature adults in about three weeks. Adults can live for about four weeks but do not lay eggs until after seven days. Head lice do not survive off a host for more than one or two days.

Crab lice are small, light brown, flat insects that cling to pubic hair, suck blood for nourishment, and fix their eggs (nits) to the pubic hairs. The blood sucking may cause little red sores and itching. Crab lice are almost always spread by close physical contact. They prefer the pubic hair and do not voluntarily leave the body.

What are head lice and nits?
Head lice are very small insects which live on the scalp of human beings. They are few millimetres in length and are a light brown colour. They don't live on animals.
The lice feed by sucking blood from your scalp. They lay eggs, called nits , which they stick to the shafts of your hair with a very strong glue. The eggs are dull grey, and are fastened to the hair very close to the scalp, so they are kept nice and warm. After about 7 days, the eggs hatch, and new lice are released. Two weeks later, the new lice are fully grown, and start laying eggs. Very soon hundreds of lice can be living on your scalp. Hatched eggs remain attached to your hair for some time. The hatched egg is white, and can be seen as a small white blob stuck to a hair, about an inch away from the scalp.

Parents Infections Parasitic Infections (Worms, Lice, etc.)
Much to many parents' annoyance, the head louse is a tiny, wingless parasitic insect that lives among human hairs and feeds on extremely small amounts of blood drawn from the scalp. Although they may sound gross, lice (the plural of louse) are a very common problem, especially for kids ages 3 years to 12 years (girls more often than boys). Lice aren't dangerous and they don't spread disease, but they are contagious and can just be downright annoying. Their bites may cause your child's scalp to become itchy and inflamed and persistent scratching may lead to skin irritation and even infection. How Can I Tell if My Child Has Lice?
Though very small, lice can be seen by the naked eye. What you or your child's doctor might see by thoroughly examining your child's head: Lice eggs (called nits) , which look like tiny, oval white (to yellow) dots. Lice lay nits on hair shafts close to the skin's surface, where the temperature is perfect for keeping warm until they hatch. Nits look sort of like dandruff, only they can't be removed by brushing or shaking them off. Unless the infestation is heavy, it's more common to see nits in a child's hair than it is to see live lice crawling on the scalp. Lice eggs hatch within 1 to 2 weeks after they're laid. Adult lice and nymphs (baby lice).

What are lice?
Lice are very common, especially among schoolage children. Transmission is via head-to-head contact and it has nothing to do with personal hygiene. The head louse is a tiny greyish-brown insect, about 2.5mm long. Head lice are usually found on the scalp and live on blood from the 'host', which they get by biting through the scalp.
Adult lice mate and the female then lays eggs that are firmly attached to individual hairs close to the scalp and can be very difficult to remove. After seven or eight days the baby louse hatches out of the egg, leaving a shiny white empty eggshell or 'nit', which may be found anywhere along a strand of hair.

FDA Action Shows Grave Dangers Of Lindane Lice Treatment, Says National Pediculosis Association
Health, Safety, Nutrition and Kids
Information and news releases furnished by the members of PR Newswire, who are responsible for their fact and content.
BOSTON, April 10, 1996 The National Pediculosis Association (NPA) today applauded the FDA's new recommended labeling changes for childhood lice treatments containing the pesticide lindane, a chemical identified as a hazardous substance by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry of the U.S. Department of Health and Health and Human Services. At the same time, the NPA continues to warn parents and pediatricians of the "grave" implications of using any lindane-based products citing a growing body of evidence that the product can cause serious and sometimes fatal conditions. "In its statement, the FDA advised that lindane be a treatment of last resort its own acknowledgment that this pesticide can carry serious risks," said NPA President Deborah Altschuler. "The reports we have been receiving indicate that these risks are more widespread than previously acknowledged, and that in certain cases, the adverse effects in lindane outweigh the risks of having lice. In particular, pregnant or nursing women should never be exposed to any of the lice pesticides, even as a last resort." The FDA has recommended labeling changes that encourage lindane's use only for patients who have either failed to respond to adequate doses, or are intolerant of, other approved therapies."Altschuler noted two of the problems that remain despite this recommendation:
