Do Pesticides Kill Head Lice?

Sorry!  Head Lice have become incredibly resistant to over-the-counter pesticides and prescription pesticides.  In November 2013, Fresh Heads Lice Removal participated in a nationwide study led by scientists at the University of Massachusetts.  The study wanted to gauge just how resistant head lice are to these pesticides.  The results were astounding and clear:  Every single bug that Fresh Heads Lice Removal sent for the study (and we sent hundreds!) was completely resistant to over-the-counter pesticides.  Even prescription pesticides are largely ineffective, particularly on the nits.  Further, these treatments are toxic and can be very expensive.
