Mutant Nits!10

 I know you’ve all heard of nits (head lice) and I also know that you all hate them. The pesky 1/8 of an inch insects feeding on the blood from your scalp, and are always reproducing and spreading – especially between young kids playing. Well, if you think they’re annoying and hard to kill, they’ve mutated!

Research suggests that nits are developing a high level of resistance to commonly used over-the-counter remedies, meaning they are becoming even harder to shake off.

The Mirror reports that researchers from Southern Illinois University found lice have developed resistance in at least 25 US states. They found many of the insects tested positive for genetic mutations; affecting the nervous system of the lice and desensitising them to treatments.

Usually the very common pest is found in young kids’ hair, but now it’s spreading to teenagers too due to the new trend of “selfies.” Teens put their heads together to fit in the picture, while the nits are transmitting from one head to the other heads! The usual treatment of just using the special conditioner and that horrible spiked comb will not work in many infestations of lice.  These lice may only be controlled by certain chemicals – some only available by prescription – and the bad thing is if we keep using these chemicals they will develop yet another resistance.

I know after reading this article you’re all probably scratching your head like mad! Sorry! I suggest you go and check your hair, family’s hair, your dog’s hair, EVERYBODY’S HAIR!!

    So the moral of the story is, stop taking bloody selfies or you’ll get nits
