Pediculosis...

Pediculosis....
Sounds so fancy, doesn't it?
Well, I suppose..... if you don't know what it means!
 
However, if you do know what it means you are
probably scratching your head right now!
Pediculosis = Head Lice
 
The kids are back at school and
they brought some bugs with them too!
 
I always stress to teachers that
head lice cannot jump or fly...
they can only crawl.
 
So one must be rubbing heads,
sharing combs/brushes, jackets, head phones, hats,
scarves, blankets, masks (as in Halloween masks),
& more things similar to those listed above.
 
This information makes the teacher feel better-
but they still leave my office scratching their heads!
 
This picture shows only the eggs of head lice & no live lice-
I couldn't find a good picture of the live bugs on the hair/scalp.
Believe me though- once you've seen them you'll always
remember what they look like!
