Elimilice – Atlanta area’s answer for head lice checks, treatment and prevention

Today we had two families visit us from quite a distance for head lice checks and supposed treatments.  They explained that Elimilice had a far reaching reputation for honesty, thoroughness, a caring staff and as Atlanta's most professional service where all head lice are removed in one visit in an immaculate spa-like setting. The first family of four came in the morning from Alabama to our … [Read more...]

To treat, or not to treat, that is the question. Head lice treatment in the Atlanta area by Elimilice.

Shakespeare, in Hamlet’s famous soliloquy (from which the title of this post is derived), is actually considering the essence of action vs. non-action (or some scholars interpret as life vs. death) and this is sometimes the conundrum presented at Elimilice's professional head lice service. Specifically, we often have people come to us requesting immediate treatment.  They want to bypass a head … [Read more...]

Head lice removal specialist, Elimilice featured on NBC television affiliate, 11Alive

As Atlanta’s largest head lice removal company, Elimilice, was recently featured as the area's head lice expert in a television segment on NBC-affiliate, 11Alive.  I spoke with the reporter about how I got into this business (after my then 5 year old daughter contracted head lice three times in less than a year), how there is NO reason to be ashamed by having head lice as it is becoming more and … [Read more...]

Head Lice – not just a nuisance for children!

Today, we treated two grandmothers, M, 92 and H, 95 (and three other members of their family).   M had a very very severe case with thousands of nits, multi-staged nymphs and adult lice.  We estimate she’d been inhabited by a fertilized female at least six to eight weeks before (although the place of contraction remains a mystery to the family.)   It appears M passed the case to her daughter, her … [Read more...]

Client Testimonial for Elimilice

Not too long ago, I posted a blog entry about Gabbie, a beautiful first grader  whom we had treated for head lice.  I wanted to try and dispel a lot of the age-old wives' tales about head lice as well as the notion that those of African descent DO NOT get head lice. Gabbie's mother, Allison, was so very happy with the service as reflected in this … [Read more...]

Magic Cure for Head Lice?

This morning, I took my 8 year old to the pediatrician as she was complaining of a headache, earache, sore throat and stomach ache.  She had an ear infection that required antibiotics.  I had a philosophical conversation with our pediatrician about prescribing such because we’d been in on Tuesday for the same complaints and at that time, she tested negative for strep and did not have an ear … [Read more...]

More Technicians for In Home Head Lice Removal Added

At Elimilice, we pride ourselves on being sensitive to the needs and requests of our clients, and already this summer, we have become aware of a marked increase in the number of head lice cases in the Atlanta area.  This past winter and spring, when we were "booked solid" in our Decatur and Sandy Springs facilities, there were a few times we found ourselves "short" on the number of technicians we … [Read more...]

Head lice can live off the head for two weeks. Head lice nits can hatch after an extended time off the human head. Head lice are killed by chlorine in a pool. Head lice are the signs of a … [Read more...]

School’s Out but the Head Lice Are Not on Vacation

Busy busy busy. We've been seeing lots of children for head checks before they leave for camp, lots of children (and adults) for treatment who took more than their notebooks with them when they finished with school recently and lots of parents purchasing preventative products before they meet with family and friends for out-of-town vacations. We were also recently featured in these local … [Read more...]
