Did you know Summer is peak lice season? Of course, your kids love this time of the year. School is out. Since many kids are preparing to spend time at camp or with their friends; you don’t want head lice to show up.
Peak Lice Season
Unfortunately, head lice is more prevalent in the warmer weather. Because kids are with other kids all the time, it is easy for head lice to transport from one head to another. Whether you have your kids enrolled in a day or overnight camp; it is important to take preventative measures.
So, you have your kids enrolled in either a day or overnight camp. But, what happens when you receive a phone call from the nurse letting you know your kid has head lice? In camp, parents, kids and counselors spend a lot of time together. In the light, it is easy to see lice and nits in someone’s hair.

Summer Lice Tips
Of course, no one wants to worry about nits and lice. To prevent nits or lice, there are a few things you can do. If you’re child has long hair, put your kid’s hair in a bun or a braid. By keeping your kid’s hair clean and contained; a louse is less likely to infest on your kid’s head.
Kids love to swim. Make sure your kids don’t share their personal items such as a comb, hairbrush, towel or hat. Lice spread and they can easily spread from one person to another person.
Many people falsely think chlorine can get rid of lice. But, that isn’t the case. Moreover, the Disease and Prevention Center conducted a study and reported that swimming in chlorine water doesn’t kill lice.
In summary, the good news is lice don’t swim in water and won’t spread.
As always, I welcome your comments on what measures you will take during peak lice season.
