I found your article about head lice most fascinating. Lice do not care about the “classes” of society. They are quite indiscriminate in their life’s pursuit.
I remember most vividly raising my daughter with her best friend during middle school. Callie would become mildly affected while her friend was fully infested. It was a tough time because I had to treat them and then separate them for a few days. It seemed like punishment for a “crime” not intentionally committed. Good advice on the combs. Completely time consuming – like playing 18 holes of golf and hoping for your best.
These pests have broken a barrier: from over-the-counter to prescriptions for a remedy. First, antibiotics and now our pests have super-bug status. Americans are such wimps. These bugs will grow in numbers of any and all sizes, shapes and forms – kicking our collective posteriors.
Insects are conquerors, and they don’t care where you live.
