Most of us either have had head lice or knows someone who has had it sometimes in their life. It wasn’t too hard to get rid of them at one time. It was usually a simple purchase of some special shampoo or some concoction your grandmother came up with and sometimes it would be a drastic measure of cutting your hair. But now a new report is indicating that Lice are becoming more difficult to eradicate in young children’s hair, according to a study released last week in the Journal of Medical Entomology (JME).
Excerpt From The Daily Caller:
New evidence shows that head lice have developed resistance to two types of common over the counter insecticide treatments for lice infestation. JME studied 48 states and found that, on average, 98 percent of head lice in at least 42 states managed to grow gene mutations that enable them to become resistant to different insecticides otherwise known as pyrethrins, pyrethroids, and permathrins.
