A mature adult louse lays 3 to 10 nits per day which in turn hatch in 7 to 10 days.  It takes only another 7 to10 days for the nymphs to become mature, nit-laying adults.  It's easy to see how rapidly the head lice problem multiplies without effective, professional ASAP treatment by a lice removal specialist.
Recognizing The Problem
Lice nits are slightly smaller than a sesame seed, usually beige in color and oval to slightly pear-shaped. They attach very close to the scalp and adhere themselves to hair strands with a strong, gluey substance.  Check frequently yourself!  It's a good start in prevention.
Lice nymphs range in size as they mature from baby to adult, but they have the same general appearance as mature head lice.
Adult lice are about the size of a sesame seed, with females being slightly larger than males.  They have six legs that wrap around a hair shaft and are tan to grayish-white in color.  Sometimes they appear to be dark red after feeding.
Symptoms can be quite intense for some.  Severe itching, crawling sensations and red bumps and rashes behind the ears and on the neck may occur.  If these bumps are scratched excessively, they may become small sores.  Unfortunately, some people have no at all until lice infestation becomes quite severe.  Early lice treatment is crucial to beat it.

When in doubt of infestation, err on the side of caution and act quickly to end your lice problem, and get rid of every nit before infestation starts all over again.
