Are head lice seasonal

What time of the year is the worst for head lice

Head lice are prolific throughout the year, they are not dormant at any part of the year.  Head lice will colonize and mate twelve months of the year. 

There are times when they spread more easily, head lice do seem to more prominent in situations where people are in close contact with each other.

Summer camp, school, sleepovers when children play in close proximity this why it is often younger children that seem to spread head lice.  However, since the birth of the selfie culture and where teens lock heads listening to music or watching the latest Youtube video there has been a sharp rise in teenagers with head lice.

Summer hats and winter hats that are shared among friends can also be a quick way to transfer head lice from on host to the other.

It is only the female that will transfer after mating and the female head louse can lay up to one hundred eggs in her lifetime without the need to mate again.

Within a week to ten days the nymphs will hatch and after ten days and three maults they will mate and go on to populate a head.
