Nits, eggs, louse – what’s the difference?

Nits, eggs, louse – what’s the difference? This Is a question we often hear from our customers. They are all different stages of head lice. We want to take the opportunity to clarify them:

What are nits?

Nits are the small eggs produced by the live louse bugs that usually look like small brown or tan dots before they hatch. We can also call nits, eggs or lice eggs. Usually lice lay their eggs close to the scalp where the live lice can be close to their food source once they hatch. Lice feed on human blood by using tiny claws to puncture the skin on the scalp.

Lice on Hair

Eggs (nits) or dandruff?

Nits look very similar to dandruff, however, they cannot be removed by brushing or shaking them off. The lice eggs are seemly glued to the hair follicle, only on one side to it. Lice eggs tend to hatch 7-10 days after they are laid and the shell remain on the hair looking white or clear. The adult lice are no bigger than a sesame seed and the nymphs are usually a bit smaller and grow to be adult lice in about 10 days.

What is a louse?

Louse is the singular word for lice. Louse can be feminine or masculine and they are commonly referred as “bugs”. A female louse mates once in her life and lays eggs throughout her life span (30-days).
