When playing the word association with the word "lice", you can elicit many different responses.


Parents hear the word "lice" and automatically go into "parent mode" and hustle to the store to buy some tea tree oil, inspect other kids in the house, and immediately start washing and disinfecting the house.

For those without kids. You hear the word "lice" and for some reason, you reach to your head and start scratching, not fully knowing where lice come from, how they get in your hair, and then you scratch your head more. I know this because even as I type this story, I find myself reaching up and scratching my head.

According to the Coloradoan, Lice Clinics of America has opened a Fort Collins clinic. Lice Clinics of America is a private medical device company that was founded in 2006, they use technology, that is FDA-approved, and has been clinically proven to kill head lice and 99.2 percent of their eggs in children and adults in a one-hour treatment.

You can find the clinic at 1501 S. Lemay Ave, Suite 205, and it's open seven days a week by appointment. Treatments range from $65 for a home-kit to $175/per person for a professional treatment and combing.
