Miami, Florida (PRWEB) May 21, 2015
How do you stop head lice epidemics in schools? This is the million dollar question for parents and school administrators, but a Miami Lice Removal Company, Lice Troopers, the all-natural lice removal company based in southern Florida, is devising new ways to stop the spread.
As most physicians and lice professionals will tell you, the first step is education and prevention. Despite the ubiquity of head lice in daycares and classrooms, head lice and how they spread are still widely misunderstood. Many continue to equate the condition with unhygienic living conditions, poor personal care and poverty, assuming that a clean home and frequent bathing will keep the bugs away. This however this is a myth—lice affect all social classes and even prefer clean hair to dirty. Others are unclear about how lice are passed. Thus lice removal services like Lice troopers acknowledge that preventing outbreaks starts with helping parents, kids and teachers understand lice and how to prevent them.
One lice removal company, Lice Troopers has also partnered with local schools to assist in periodic school-wide screenings. It only takes one case to launch a mass epidemic so catching infestations early is crucial. As head lice often don’t manifest symptoms for several weeks, if parents and teachers are waiting until kids start to suffer from itchy scalp, it’s possible that the condition has been present and has been passed around for quite some time. Lice professionals screen each child carefully for any sign of the parasite and its eggs (nits), and if found, parents are notified and can schedule treatment immediately.
An in an effort to promote a lice free school year, the company has also initiated a school membership program that includes regularly scheduled screenings throughout the year as well as discounts to parents whose children need treatment. The program has already been enthusiastically received among school administrators.
Said Lice Troopers owner and operator Arie Harel, “If we’re going to stop head lice, we have to look at the primary place where lice are passed. That’s the classroom. By partnering with teachers, administrators and parents, we can help ensure a lice free school year. It’s win-win all around.”
