We have received multiple reports from parents, school nurses and daycare owners that there is currently a major infestation of "Super Lice" in the city of Austin, Texas.
Super Lice are nothing more than ordinary lice that have become resistant to the permethrin based treatments such as RID or NIX.
The reason there are so many families dealing with head lice in Austin is because the city is in an area where head lice can thrive. The climate is perfect and since the people are very friendly, head-to-head contact is common.
The only solution to solving this health crisis in Austin is to follow the best practices for killing head lice and reducing re-infestations.
We have put together some information resources for dealing with Super Lice.
