There have been a number of problems with this at our school and after every reported incident I checked my kids out. Luckily they never got them; however, at the very end of the school year one of them did. I did a combination of some of these ideas. She is older so I used dog flee and tick remover (which after a lot of research I found out it would be ok. I left it on for about 5 minutes or so and wrapped her hair in a plastic bag since I didn't have shower caps. When it was time to get out I rinsed her hair thoroughly and then washed it again in Dawn dish soap followed by conditioner. I blow dried her hair and then used a straightening iron. No lice and any nits left were easy to pull off since they were fried. We have a farm so I used our barn spray on the rugs and couches. I had the kids out of the house until it all cleared and vacummed later. That or bug bombs will clear them out of the house.
