Description of Head Lice



An adult head louse has six legs, is about the size of a sesame seed, and is tan to greyish-white. If the infested person has dark hair, the adult louse will look darker. Female head lice lay the nits (eggs) and are usually larger than males. Adult head lice can survive up to 30 days on the head of an infested person. Adult head lice need to feed on blood to live, so if the head louse falls off a person, it dies within 2 days.

Nits are head lice eggs and are hard to see. They are often mistaken for dandruff or hair spray droplets. Head lice eggs are oval and usually yellow to white in color. Female head lice can lay up to eight nits per day! It takes only about one week for nits to hatch.

Nits hatch into baby head lice called nymphs. Nymphs look like adult head lice but are smaller. Nymphs mature into adult head lice about 7 days after hatching. Like the adult louse, the nymph must feed on blood.
