41. Head Lice
lice are tiny parasites that can cause itching and scratching, especially on areas of the body that are covered with hair. Learn parents.

Parents Infections Parasitic Infections (Worms, Lice, etc.)
Signs and Symptoms:
Lice are tiny brown and gray parasites that can cause itching and scratching, especially on areas of the body that are covered with hair (typically the scalp, neck, and behind the ears). If your child's hair is involved, you might be able to see the tiny lice eggs (called "nits"), which look like white grains of sand attached to the hair shafts. It is more common to see nits in a child's hair than it is to see live lice crawling on the scalp. Description:
The head louse, Pediculus hu manus capitus though very small (2 mm to 4 mm long), can be seen by the human eye. Lice live among human hairs, draw blood from the skin (although the amount drawn is almost too little to measure), and lay eggs ("nits") on hair shafts, close to the skin surface, where the temperature is perfect for incubation. They have tiny claws on their legs that are adapted for feeding and clinging to hair or clothing. Their bites may cause inflammation and itching, and the y can become infected. Temporarily, lice can live in clothing, bed linens, combs, brushes, and hats that have come in contact with an infested person. Kids and teens are most prone to catching lice because they are likely to share such personal items and because they are often in close physical contact with other infected children. Six to 12 million people are infested with lice each year.

42. Pubic Lice - Health Information
Health information discussing pubic lice, crabshaped insects, which attach themselves to human hairs. Infection is common and found worldwide. Pubic lice.
Pubic Lice WHAT IS IT?
Pubic lice, commonly referred to as "crabs" are small, crab-shaped insects (Pthirus pubis), which attach themselves to human hairs. Crabs usually live in the pubic hair but can sometimes be found in axillary or armpit hair, facial hair, or even eyelashes. Infection is common and found worldwide. WHAT CAUSES IT?
Pubic lice occur when adult lice lay eggs, called nits, on the hair shaft close to the skin. The egg, which is white to yellow and oval shaped, requires 7-10 days to hatch into a nymph. Nymphs and adult lice feed on human blood. WHAT ARE ITS COMMON SYMPTOMS?
It is possible to be infested with pubic lice and have no symptoms. More commonly, itching occurs, which worsens at night. Pubic lice are difficult to see because of their location and appearance. Grayish-white lice blend in with white skin and brown lice can be mistaken for moles or can be hard to see on black skin. A rash or faint bluish spots might be noted at the site of bites. If lice infest the eyebrows or eyelashes, the eyes may become inflamed. HOW IS IT TRANSMITTED?

Health information discussing head lice (pediculosis capitis) which is an infestation of the scalp. These parasitic Head lice. Head lice
Head Lice Head lice infection, also known as pediculosis, is very common and can occur at any age, to either sex and is not limited to the poor or certain racial or ethnic groups. Learn how to recognize head lice infestation, how to treat it, and how to prevent it from coming back. WHAT ARE HEAD LICE?
These tiny parasitic insects (Pediculosis capitis) live in human hair (not on pets) and require human blood for survival. They hatch from small eggs called nits, which are attached to the base of individual hairs. The nits hatch into nymphs in about 7-10 days. Nymphs reach maturity in another 7-10 days. The adult louse is about the size of a sesame seed with six legs and a color range from off-white to reddish-tan. The female louse can live up to 30 days, laying as many as six eggs a day. Lice can only crawl, they cannot jump or fly. HOW DOES SOMEONE GET HEAD LICE?
The most common form of transmission is direct contact with someone infested with head lice. Transmission may also occur by borrowing and using an infected person's a comb or brush, hats, ribbons, scarves or other head coverings. You can also get head lice by sharing towels or pillowcases, or lying on a bed, couch or carpet that has recently been in contact with a person's head infested with lice.

Head lice. Three kinds of lice can infest humans head lice (Pediculus capitis), body lice (P. humanus) and crab (or pubic) lice (Phthirus pubis).
HGIC 2503 Head Lice Three kinds of lice can infest humans - head lice ( Pediculus capitis ), body lice ( P. humanus ) and crab (or pubic) lice ( Phthirus pubis ). The head louse is closely related to the body louse, but their behavior is quite different. Experts disagree on whether or not these two insects are different species. They look nearly identical. However, the head louse stays on a person for its entire life, while the body louse lives in the seams of clothing and is only found on a person when feeding. The body louse is very rare, occurring in unsanitary, crowded conditions, where people wear the same clothing for many days. Crab (or pubic) lice are usually transferred from one individual to another through intimate contact, but occasionally can be transferred in other ways. Head lice are the most common louse problem in the United States. They are easily spread by physical contact and infestations can occur under the best sanitary conditions. Every year, 6 to 10 million people in the United States have head lice with three-quarters of them being school children less than 12 years old. Girls typically have higher rates of infestation than boys do. However, having shorter hair does not prevent or eliminate infestations. Income level is not a factor in infestation. If one family member is infested with head lice, the risk of infestation for the rest of the family is greater. Usually Caucasians have more problems with head lice due to the shape of the individual hair shaft.

Lice and Lindane
The US FDA issued a March 28, 2003 health advisory about Lindane, a pesticide commonly used to treat lice and scabies . New warnings on the box warn consumers and doctors that this nerve poison is potentially toxic to the nervous system, and therefore should not be used as the first treatment option. Also, Lindane should be used in caution in anyone weighing less than 110 pounds. It is known to have caused seizures in some children (it is even used for intentionally causing seizures in some animal research). Lindane is even known to have quickly killed a few who have used it. Many countries have banned Lindane altogether because of its persistent toxicity to people and to the environment. In the United States, about a million prescriptions for Lindane are written each year. In addition to the adverse health effects on the person using the Lindane, most of the shampoo or lotion goes down the drain. A single treatment for head lice is sufficient to contaminate up to 6 million gallons of water. In 2001, the State of California banned Lindane totally because of the high levels documented in the Los Angeles drinking water supply. Lindane remains on the market in the rest of the US, even though safer effective treatments are available for both lice and scabies.

Brown Tree Snakes
Everyone else is telling snake fables; that is mine.
Some people seem to be plagued with snakes, and other people, like us, never see them. Since 1991, we have only seen one in the wild. We have been told that if you have cats, you won't have snakes. We have four cats, but only once did they bring home a snake body. Our neighbor says that the cats don't usually kill the snakes, they just harass them until they decide to go somewhere more peaceful. The Guam Power Authority has blamed snakes for power outages so often that it has become a joke. The snakes, who are arboreal, climb utility poles and fry their buns on the power lines. The GPA guys got so tired of people saying, "Yeah, right" to their snake stories that they started producing snake bodies as evidence. It has been suggested that the snakes are attracted to electromagnetic fields.
Everyone has heard about how the snakes go after babies. People say that they can smell the milk on a young mammal. The bite of the snake can be very dangerous to babies, but we are told by experts that brown tree snakes are not technically venomous. They don't have venom sacs, but simply some weird chemicals in their saliva that can cause a bad reaction in some people. Researchers tell me that the snake is of interest because they think that snake venom in other species evolved this way, from saliva.

Information Sheets
by Mike Potter, Extension Entomologist University of Kentucky College of Agriculture
Most people associate winter with the end of their insect problems. In the case of head lice, nothing could be farther from the truth. It is incorrect to associate head lice with the stigma of poverty and poor personal hygiene. In fact, it's estimated that ten percent of elementary school children are treated for head lice each year.
Diagnosing the Problem
Head lice are bloodsucking insects that live exclusively on humans. They usually infest only the head, preferring the nape of the neck and the area behind the ears. Head lice are especially common on schoolchildren between the ages of three and ten. Schools bring large numbers of children together in close, personal contact. Hats and coats are often shared or hung together in the same closet, permitting transfer of lice from one child to another. Transfer of head lice can also occur by using infested combs and brushes, or resting one's head on upholstered furniture or pillows recently used by an infested person.
Head lice life stages
University of Kentucky Entomology The first indication of head lice is itching and scratching caused by the bloodsucking habits of the louse. Examination of the hair and scalp will usually reveal the white or grayish crawling forms (about the size of a sesame seed) and yellowish white eggs (nits) attached to the hair shafts close to the scalp. The nits are sometimes mistaken for dandruff or residues of shampoo but will not wash off or be flicked off with a finger. Usually all life stages can be seen with the naked eye, although a flashlight and hand lens are helpful. Red bite marks or scratch marks are often seen on the scalp or neck.

Frequently Asked Questions About Scabies W
hat is the most common symptom of scabies?
The most typical symptom of scabies is intense itching, particularly at night. Scabies and its associated itching occur most often between the folds of the skin, such as at the wrists and elbows, between the fingers, and in the general area of the navel and beltline. Infants and children sometimes get scabies on the head and scalp, or on the palms of the hands or soles of the feet.
How do you get scabies?
Scabies is mainly transmitted from one person to another through close contact with an infested person, or by sharing his or her personal articles, such as clothing or bed linen. If you think you may have been exposed, or if you experience intense itching, consult your physician.
Can you get scabies from pets?

Human Lice
William F. Lyon Human lice infestations known as "Pediculosis" affects persons of all ages, whether rich or poor, from the Arctic to the Tropics and throughout history. Blood is the only source of nourishment. Infestations can cause persistent itching and scratching on the scalp. Usually in severe situations, scarred, hardened, pigmented skin known as "Vagabond's Disease" may occur along with a rash and swollen lymph glands in the neck or under the arms. Inspection of the hair by a hand lens or magnifying glass may reveal small, silvery louse egg cases (nits) attached to individual hairs and/or minute, grayish specks moving within the hair, usually at the back of the head and behind the ears. Body Louse and Head Louse Pediculosis is spread mainly by direct contact with an infested person or stray hairs containing nits, personal items such as wigs, combs, hairbrushes, hair rollers, towels, pillowcases and clothing, especially hats, sweaters, scarves, etc. Treatment should be made immediately since lice populations can spread rapidly and throughout the family, school and other close living quarters. Usually, most lice that fall off the hair (that do not fall off easily) will not survive longer than two to three days, while nits can remain viable for up to 14 days off the human host. Human lice are not transmitted by pets such as dogs, cats, gerbils, birds, etc. These lice do not survive on domestic animals.

Guinea pigs originated from South America and the Andes Mountains in Peru. Many people who own guinea pigs as pets just call them "guinea pigs." Others, who show or breed them call them "cavies." Thier scientific name is "Cavia porcellus." They come in all different breeds and colors. Some breeds are: Abyssinian, Agouti, Short-Hair, Angora, and White-Crested. These breeds/varieties are determined by many factors, including color, length, and fur patterns. Guinea pigs vary in color as well. Some are sandy, some are brown, black, or white, and some are multicolored too! Some guinea pigs are albino. This means that their fur is white, but their eyes are reddish-pink. My guinea pig Snowflake is an Albino. Click here to see her picture.
