Oops. Your youngster has arrived back home from camp or vacation with head lice! Soon you'll discover how many various head lice treatments are available. But, you may not be aware that the most valuable treatment long-term depends on either finding a professional nitpicker or being a great nitpicker on your own. Many lice treatment shampoos and conditioners can kill living lice (or bugs), but they do not kill the nits (or eggs) that bring about re-infestation unless totally removed. Lice nits (eggs) can survive all kinds of treatment product with inconceivable “stick-to-itiveness” because they are actually fixed with a glue-like bonding agent to the hair shaft. Nits will remain viable until they are manually removed (or picked) from the hair shaft. So, the only sure method to ensure a truly effective lice treatment is to call on the services of a professional nitpicker just like those employed by Lice Treatment Center LLC (LTC).
Why Should You Call LTC for a Professional Nitpicker?

LTC's trained nitpickers will inspect the entire scalp and hair section by section, searching for live lice and nits. If they locate any, they will manually remove both live bugs and their eggs (or nits). Being a nitpicker is not an easy job. Nit picking is unexciting, time consuming and needsdemands the patience of a saint with excellent eyesight! A great nitpicker will take a long time inspecting the scalp checking for lice that have crawled onto the hair from anywhere -another person's hair, a piece of furniture, shared clothing, hair brushes or some other item used by another infested person. Even though it can be a tedious process, a proper nitpicker will make the difference between effective and non-effective head lice treatment. A great nitpicker will pursue every last nit possible and get rid of all of them.
Parents might try to handle an infestation initially but in the end, just don't have the days or patience it takes to look for every string of hair and manually remove all the lice and nits. That's why there are professional nitpickers, like those technicians from LTC, who will perform that job for them. LTC technicians will do all of the dirty work needed to ensure that all lice and nits are removed. LTC's professional nitpickers will also advise you on the most effective preventive products and practices available to prevent future infestations.
Some parents are extremely horrified to act as a nit picker for their family. Some will even insist on giving boys very short cuts or chopping off a girl's long hair in order to prevent lice. Nevertheless, thorough nit picking will still be needed on hair of any length to ensure that no tiny, super hard to see nits remain stuck to the hair shafts. LTC's professional nit pickers will arrive at the house equipped with magnifying lights that enable them to spot those tiny residual eggs. Even the greatest nitpicker may not be able to get every last microscopic nit during the first treatment, so follow-up care treatment by parents is also important. This involves daily inspecting, oil applications and treatment shampoos, and combing with a special comb must be continued for at least 7-10 days following a treatment.
