The Origin of Head Lice

The Origin of Head lice

The Origin of Head Lice – Where do lice come from? This is one of the most asked questions and mysteries for most people. There are not any confirmed fossils of lice so there is little proof as to where they originated.  There have been many strains of head lice over history but the strain believed to have originated in North America was the one to migrate worldwide.

Head lice are little parasites that feed on blood and live in hair. They lay their eggs (nits) on individual strands of hair. Once the eggs hatch, the nymphs have three growth spurts until they finally reach adulthood. Adults can reproduce and must eat four to five times a day in order to survive.    

Lice Facts

Head lice do not have the capabilities of flying, swimming or jumping, and they only feed on human’s scalps. This also means that there is a limited amount of ways that lice can be transmitted. The very most common way to transmit a head lice infestation is from head to head contact. Head lice infrequently try to travel by means of clothing, and they must reach hair within 48 hours or they will starve and die.
