National Bug Busting Day

Did you ever have lice as a kid? If so, how was the experience? Do you remember? Fortunately, there are easier ways to get rid of lice nowadays than it was when you were a kid. However, you do not want to deal with lice ever, and that is the purpose of National Bug Busting Day.

June 15th urges you to fight lice and beat them on National Bug Busting Day. The most common place that spreads lice is classrooms when kids are close to one another. Lice hop from one head to the next and that is how it happens. Then to make it worse, lice lay eggs on the hair follicles, and the next thing you know you have a lice problem. The issue with that is you cannot spot those lice eggs in the child’s hair, or in your hair. However, if your child or you have lice, you know how to treat them. But what you can also do is wet the hair and take a comb and comb each strand starting from the top of the head. That way, you will have an easier time removing the eggs from the hair follicles.

That way if you comb the wet hair that way, you will have an easier time preventing the lice outbreak in the hair because the eggs are out. The best thing to do is to prevent a problem before it starts. If there are reasons to suspect that your child may have been exposed to lice, wet their hair and comb it well.

The History Of National Bug Busting Day

In 2010, the UK decided to dedicate a day to fight lice in schools and provided education and awareness about the problem with lice. Educators in the UK asked parents to wet their child’s hair and to comb it well to help prevent any lice outbreaks. The Community Hygiene Concern or the CHC partnered with the Health Department in the UK to provide a few days a year to spread awareness about lice and how contagious they are. There are booklets, combs, and other educational materials that they pass out to parents each year. The world has pretty much caught onto it as well.
