NIT Emergency, LLC offers mobile head lice treatment to families, schools and camps throughout Frederick, Montgomery, Washington, Howard and Carroll Counties in Maryland plus Jefferson County, West Virginia.
We truly understand the prevalence of lice problems and how to effectively re-mediate the issue. We use products that are non-toxic and pesticide free utilizing “The Shepherd Method™ of Strand-by-Strand Nit Removal”.
Head lice are very contagious and re-infestation is quite common. It is important to manage the problem quickly and effectively. Here, we provide resources to help parents and educators identify lice problems and understand our process for removal.
Professional, Nontoxic Lice & Nit Removal
During your visit we work closely with your family to help educate them in head lice issues and to offer a variety of preventative steps in our attempt to safeguard your environment from re-occurring cases. Our goal is to help keep your family free of head lice today and in the future. Several factors determine how long the treatment will take, including how thick and long the hair is that we are working with, the severity of the infestation and how cooperative the individual is. As part of our treatment process, we encourage two “lice free” rechecks following the initial treatment process. Rechecks are scheduled within 5 to 7 days, depending on your availability and the severity of the initial case. This is not a retreat! This is an important part of the treatment process towards ensuring your family remains lice free.
NIT Emergency trained technicians are available to come to your school/camp for a classroom, school wide or camp registration head check screening. Screenings are available, for a cost of $2.00 per head; with a two hundred dollar minimum. This is a small fee to pay for peace of mind that your environment is lice free!
Community Awareness Presentations & PTA Meetings
Education is the key to better understand how to effectively deal with head lice. One of our major goals is to better educate parents, children, schools and the community. By working together we can minimize the number of infestations and help reduce the negative stigma and common myths associated with fighting head lice.
Are your PTA parents concerned about making the school environment a better place for their children? Are they willing to listen and discuss head lice in an effort to be prepared when it affects their family? 12 million cases are reported each year! How many cases go unreported? We can provide education for them!
NIT Emergency is willing to work closely with your school to help promote such events as Head Check Awareness Week, Head Lice Prevention Month, and Summer Camp Safety. All events are geared to help keep our kids in school and LICE FREE!!
