Information about Head Lice Head lice: Pediculus humanus capitis It is responsible for human pediculosis of the scalp. It is a benign infection common in France and all around the world especially among groups of children. Head lice do not carry any diseases. They can however cause impetigo which can lead to cuts from scratching. It is important to treat this bacterial secondary infection before starting the anti-lice treatment. Head and body lice are morphologically very similar. Among the three species, the female is slightly bigger than the male. Description of head lice Head lice are small wingless insects with a flat dorso-lateral body. On an empty stomach they are a whitish colours but once swallowed blood they become a darker red or black colour. They measure 2-3mm in length. Without wings they cannot fly or jump but they can move around quickly (at the speed of 23cm/minute in natural conditions) between the hair that they attach to due to their 3 pairs of short legs with pincers. Their abdomen is bigger than the rest of their body and they do not have appendices. The lice breathe via orifices called spiracles which can close and make them waterproof These orifices also have an excretion function. They short antennas and very specialised mouths; biter-sucker type which form a retractable tube. The part that enters the skin consists of three stylets, which remain inside the head of the insect when it is not feeding. Eating exclusively from the host’s blood, which it bites 2-4 times a day for meals of about 30 minutes, it can live on the scalp for more than one month (30 to 40 days). When the insect feeds, its flattened body is full to bursting. Far from its host, it rarely survives more than 36 hours, it dies of hunger or dehydration. It is necessary for the lice to feed regularly on blood, and the climatic and humidity conditions necessary for its survival are quite strict: temperature between 28-32° C with 70-80% humidity. The head louse is said to be “the obligatory external parasite of the human,” therefore it must absolutely be on a human to live. We do not know their predators. These are questions we ask ourselves about lice and nits Can lice reproduce? An adult louse lays 4-10 eggs per day called nits. The eggs hatch 7 days after and they are called nymphs. After 10 days the nymphs turn into adults and then it is their time to reproduce. How long can lice survive without human blood? Lice can barely survive more than 36 hours. They die of starvation and dehydration. Can they swim? The respiratory orifices close when in water, so they are able to continue breathing fo several hours under water. So it is useless to try and drown them. What is the difference between dandruff and nits? Dandruff is white and fall spontaneously onto the head whereas nits are a whitish colour when empty but darker when they have eaten blood. They attached themselves to the scalp with a cement-type substance which is formed at egg hatching. Can we find lice on other parts of the body such as the chest, armpits or on pubic hair? No, lice only appear on the hair and potentially on eyebrows, the moustache or the beard! There are 2 types of lice: body lice and crabs. Can lice jump or fly? Lice are not fleas, being wingless they cannot jump or fly. They spread via direct contact.
