Checking at home for lice and nits

Checking Is The Best Prevention

use a comb for prevention and to clean out lice and nits It's great prevention to check your children's heads for live bugs and nits once a week.  Look for nits which will be attached to the hair shaft very close to the scalp.  They're very tiny, beige in color, and most of all stuck to the hair shaft.  If the specks blow or flick away pretty easily, it's probably dandruff or lint.  Live bugs can be harder to see.  Even though they're much bigger than nits, the run fast and hide from light or searching fingers and combs.
