We encourage all families to have their children checked for head lice before returning to school
Huntington Station, NY (PRWEB) August 11, 2012
September is National Head Lice Prevention Month, and Lice Tamers Head Lice Treatment Service is ready to help. Lice Tamers is set to open their brand new, fully-equipped, full-service treatment center in Huntington Station on August 11th.
Previously offering only in-home lice treatment and removal services, Lice Tamers is expanding, and will be offering the same services at their new head lice treatment center, with the added convenience of "walk-in" appointments.
Although head lice are not dangerous, and they do not carry disease, they are extremely contagious and very difficult to get rid of. Years of overuse have rendered head lice resistant to most over-the-counter and prescription pesticide-based products. Lice Tamers uses only natural, non-toxic, pesticide-free products in combination with our gentle combing technique to safely and effectively eradicate head lice. For those individuals who prefer to DIY, kits containing the same products we use professionally may be purchased at our treatment center or on our website.
The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages children from missing school due to a head lice infestation. Many schools, however, maintain a "nit-free" policy, resulting in school days being missed unneccesarily. Children may not be allowed back in school until they have been determined to be free of head lice and nits (eggs).
At Lice Tamers we are encourage all families to have their children checked for head lice before returning to school. We will be offering head lice checks for the low cost of only $10 through August 25th.
