Parents are not usually prepared for head lice and their eggs (nits). Often these words are enough to put parents in a panic mode and in an action mode on how to effectively and quickly get rid of this infestation. What parents are looking for is an effective and safe treatment for getting rid of lice. NYDA not only kills head lice, but also gets rid of eggs (nits). If the chosen treatment can not kill eggs (slow), it will be difficult to prevent re-infestation. It is therefore important to choose an effective treatment not only against adult lice but also against eggs (nits) like NYDA. NYDA works by suffocation with adult lice as well as eggs (nits).
Can pets have lice?

How can I tell if eggs are dead or alive?
The new eggs are attached to the hair shaft close to the scalp. Eggs that contain a louse embryo are brown, while those that are empty are white or gray. Since the hair grows about 1 cm per month, if an egg is found about 1 cm from the scalp, it is very likely that it has already hatched or contains a dead embryo.
In any case, it is recommended to remove anything that seems doubtful to stop the infestation.
