NORCROSS, GA, November 20, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Atlanta exterminators Team Pest USA know that virtually every child is exposed to head lice at some point in their school career. Day cares can be one of the easiest places to contract head lice as children often share blankets, mats and pests when they take their afternoon naps.
The problem for Atlanta pest control and home owners is defeating the lice when one child brings them home. Lice can spread to family pets, other family members and even the furniture, at least temporarily. While the lice won't stay on the sofa or bed for long, they don't mind using your furniture as a way to move from one yummy human host to the next.
When lice appear, parents are often cast in the role of pest control experts in Atlanta. From home remedies including smothering the lice in mayonnaise to over-the-counter pesticides, usually in the form of a shampoo, the key to stopping lice is to attack them quickly and make sure to get them all, including the nits or eggs.
Exposed bedding and stuffed toys should be washed in hot water. Hard surfaces should be cleaned with bleach or ammonia and even after using a shampoo to wash away the lice, parents should use a fine toothed comb to brush out children's hair and make sure to get every last louse.
"Every few years, we see a lice infestation that begins in our schools," said Brandon Pelfrey, owner."If parents learn that lice are present in their child's classroom, they should be proactive and watch diligently to make sure the lice don't come home from school with their children."
