“Lice is a scary word that no parent wants to hear when getting a call from their children’s school,” Andrea Hecht, co-founder of the Lice Crew,

The Lice Crew says, according to recent findings, over 98 per cent of lice cases are the new “super lice” variety that are resistant to many over-the-counter treatments.

Prices range from $20 for a head lice screening to $80 per hour for lice removal treatment.
