Do you know why 93% of parents "looking" for head lice will not see any signs of an infestation until the child has had them for 3-4 weeks?

Selfies. One of the main causes of head lice infestations in teenagers and adults. Middle school and high school girls are surpassing the elementary and preschool aged children in the amount of head lice infestations yearly.
