Is it bed bugs?

The major difference between bed bugs and lice is how they affect people. Lice generally need blood every day or so to survive. These pests stay on their human host, causing itchiness and skin irritation shortly after they feed. Not only are people able to see adult and immature lice if they look closely, but they can also see pests small, light - colored eggs stuck to strands of hair. On the other hand, bed bugs usually feed for a few days before any sign of skin rash appears on those affected, although in some cases, rash may show up shortly after bed bug take blood meal. It's unlikely that residents will even see, let alone feel, bed bugs since they feed mostly at night and their bites usually go unnoticed. Blood flecks or fecal matter stains on mattresses and sheets are often the first sign of infestation.

Head lice: Pediculus humanus capitis, parasitic insects found on heads of people. Head lice are most often found on scalp, behind ears and near the neckline at back of the neck. Lice hold onto hair with hook - like claws at the end of each of their six legs. Head lice are rarely found on body, eyelashes, or eyebrows. These insects lay their sticky, white eggs on hair shaft close to the root, while hatch lice stay mostly on scalp. Head lice infection is very common and easily acquired by coming in close contact with someone who has head lice, infested clothing, or infested belongings. Preschool and elementary school children and their families are most often infest. Symptoms include the tickling feeling of something moving in the hair, itching caused by allergic reaction to bites, irritability, and sores on the head caused by scratching. Although lice are very small, they can be seen on scalp when they move. Eggs are easily seen on hair shafts. Treatment involves a combination of topical insecticidal medication and manual removal of all nits with lice comb or fingers. Both medication and complete nit removal are necessary to prevent reinfestation. All clothing, bedding, and furniture surfaces must also be washed or sprayed with insecticide. Note that 1% lindane solution contains gamma benzene, which can be toxic to the brain and has been linked to childhood leukemia.
