PSA: Head lice in adult females are on the rise in Palm Beach & Martin Counties. Head lice is thought to mainly happen to children, but not anymore... The Lice Raiders of Jupiter has seen a substantial increase of head lice infestations in adult females this year, particularly in the past few months.
The concerning factor about the woman that The Lice Raiders have been treating lately is that the majority of them are not mothers and they have little to no contact with children.
As many as 12 million children get head lice every year in America. It is known that mothers of children who have head lice have about an %80 chance of getting head lice from their children. Mothers often have longer hair that will intermingle with their childs hair while hugging and snuggling. That is how lice is spread. So, if the woman that we have treated lately do not have children and are not around children, how are they getting head lice?
We believe that social media and group selfies are to blame.
We are finding that most of these woman have friends and/or coworkers that are moms. They get together at social activities. Everyone gathers around for a few group #Snapchat, #Facebook or #Instagram photos. Heads are together and lice are spreading. It only takes 3 seconds of head to head contact for a fertilized female louse to go from one head to the other. And it only takes one female louse to start a full blown lice infestation... So ladies, if your scalp has been itchy, especially at night and nothing seems to relieve the itch, you might have head lice.

Went camping with the hubby this weekend, ALONE! Ha Since we had to cancel our LA trip because of Micah’s broken toe, we chose to still get away for a couple nights by going someplace closer. #alpineloop
It POURED rain. We had to spend a couple hours in the tent... The rain made the whole camp ground go to bed by 10:00pm, which was awesome, and we went to sleep to the sound of rain. It was relaxing and fun. 💕
