According to the Journal of Medical Entomology, 42 out of 48 states tested in 2016 were overrun by super lice, which means that lice have evolved to be resistant to the pyrethroids and pesticides in common drugstore lice treatments. 100% of the lice tested in those 42 states were super lice, including in Worcester, Massachusetts.
“In six other states – New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Oregon, New Mexico, and North Dakota – some, but not all, the lice tested were resistant to over-the-counter treatments,” According to a 2016 Yahoo article. “Alaska and West Virginia were not part of the study.” The reason for this resistance to many lice removal products is that lice have actually mutated and evolved over time to become stronger and immune/resistant to drugstore lice treatments. Over-the-counter lice treatments simply don’t work anymore.
Dealing with head lice is a headache as it is, throw super lice into the mix and it becomes a nightmare. Parents grow frustrated every day after trusting ineffective lice treatments. It’s a waste of time and money, and who wants to deal with that?
