They are tiny insects that feed on blood from the human scalp, and health experts say it can take hours to remove them…

“So lice do not actually carry disease…so there isn’t truly a danger in it… It’s just more of an annoyance; you know people don’t like the fact that there are bugs living on their head, said Certified Lice Removal Specialist with NIT Emergency, Cathlyn Lynch.

Experts added that head lice most often affect children, and come from the direct transfer of lice from the hair of one person,to the hair of another. They say head lice cases tend to increase during this time of year.

“There’s definitely been an upswing in November , so usually kind of late October…November you definitely see an upswing as the kids are going back to school… As you know they’re all now in class together,” said Lynch.

After noticing a need of an all natural in- home lice removal service within the Frederick area, Lynch opened NIT Emergency.

“By the calls that i get a lot of people are like very thankful that I am here in the Frederick area. There are companies in maryland that will come to Frederick, but there’s nobody actually who lives in the community besides me who does the lice,” added Lynch.

She has no problem getting down to the nitty-gritty to get rid of the bothersome insects.

“It involves putting a natural lice shampoo on their hair ..it’s a watered down version , but it’s a natural product that i use and I put that on their hair.. And then there’s a lot of combing …because that’s where we get rid of all of the lice is with all of the combing,’ said Lynch.
