The True VALUE of Head Lice Removal

Oh – if I had $1 for every time someone asking for service pricing said, “You’re so expensive,” I might really be wealthy.  Well, maybe $5 for every time someone made such a comment . . . . Professional head lice removal is a specialized pursuit requiring the use of costly non-chemical products, and eliminating head lice either as a professional or as a parent/caregiver is very time consuming … [Read more...]

Head lice questions answered

I have been "making the rounds," and speaking to concerned families, staff members and administrators at lots of schools and daycares in recent weeks about head lice symptoms, detection, treatment options and prevention.  I was at a lovely private Pre-K through 8 school this morning talking to and answering questions from parents, one of the school's nurses and a few of its … [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...]

Magic Potion (I Mean) Lotion to Get Rid of Head Lice?

There’s been a lot of press recently about the newest product in the battle against head lice, a prescription-only lotion which is applied for just ten minutes and is reported to not require subsequent head lice combing.  Sklice® which is topical ivermectin, received FDA approval in February and an article about it appeared recently in the The New England Journal of Medicine. So is it the … [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...]

Elimilice Identified as Atlanta Head Lice Expert

We were thrilled today to be featured as Atlanta's head lice specialist by a prominent reporter from 11 Alive News who came to visit our Atlanta treatment facility, interviewed me, chatted with some of our clients (and even shot some footage of head lice checks and head lice treatments, in action), looked at some viable evidence of  head lice (that we just happened to have pulled off of another … [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...]
