How to Control Head Lice

Head Lice are a real drag.  It is every parent’s nightmare to receive the dreaded memo stating, “A student in your child’s class has been diagnosed with Head Lice…”

That means piles and piles of laundry, a complete disruption of the family’s schedule and worst of all, hours spent combing those nasty little nits (or eggs) out of the hair.  

Head Lice controlled by Greenbug for People/Pets

Traditional head Lice treatment has been to use synthetic, chemical pesticides that have lost their effectiveness. These poisons are horrible for children – causing headaches, learning disabilities, even seizures and death.   

But not anymore!  These chemical toxins are no longer viable.  That is why we now have what are referred to as Super Head Lice. With the honor of capital letters in the name!  Super Head Lice do not respond to traditional treatments – they laugh and multiply asking for stronger, more toxic solutions.

But there is no need for these noxious products!  We can turn to Nature herself for a solution that causes no harm, uses ingredients recognized by the EPA as generally safe, and destroys the nits (or eggs) so that you DON’T HAVE TO COMB OUT THE NITS! 

What is this miracle?  It is Greenbug

Using Nature’s ingredient of Cedar, Greenbug for People/Pets will control the adult Head Lice on contact and then after using a shower cap for four hours to overnight, the nits (those pesky eggs) will be dehydrated and destroyed using Greenbug.

If your child has Head Lice, no need to worry – follow these simple steps below and you are golden!

With Greenbug, controlling Head Lice is quick, easy, and inexpensive!
