There is currently a major infestation of "Super Lice" in Los Angeles County.
This is according to multiple reports from parents, pediatricians and daycare owners. The outbreak is expected to continue throughout the summer and worsen as soon as the new school year starts.
Super Lice are nothing more than ordinary lice that have become resistant to the permethrin based treatments such as RID or NIX.
