What are lice?

pollsalta Lice are very small animals. This small, indeed. And the males are smaller than the females.

Lice are insects. They are hematophages, which means that they only feed on blood. Lice take advantage of us; they suck our blood and live in our hair. That is why they are called parasites.

Hungry lice suck blood in very small amounts but very often, and that is why people with lice scratch their head so much.
