What are lice?

  It may be stated that lice are the parasites that most often visit schools.

Since lice have probably also visited your school, you may already know a lot. or maybe not. This is why we will explain how to get rid of them.

What are lice?
Lice are hematophage insects (they feed on blood) and parasites(they live at the expense of others) which make a home out of the hair of people (Pediculus humanus capitis). Some lice also install themselves in clothes and on the body (Pediculus humanus corporis), while others do so in the pubic region (Phthirus pubis). But for the time being we won't speak about these last two types.
