After dealing with head lice first hand in her own children’s hair, Taryn Kukle, owner of The Lice People was SO stressed out.  She spent many hours going through her children’s hair, spent lot’s of money on useless and harmful products, and countless hours cleaning her house from top to bottom.  She even packed up her family and moved out of the house for three days!!!  This was all unnecessary and expensive work due to the misinformation given about head lice.  That’s when she knew she needed to do something about it and the idea of The Lice People was conceived!

The Lice People uses a safe and non-toxic lice removal technique utilizing The Shepherd Method of Strand By Strand Nit Removal developed by world renowned lice expert, Katie Shepherd.  The Lice People staff are well educated about the lifecycle of lice, how to prevent it along with all the myths and questions associated with it.  We are pleased to provide support to families, schools, camps and communities by offering current information and safe solutions to head lice eradication.  We believe education is the best defense to beating these pesky critters.


 Lice treatment service

I tried to remove head lice, but over the counter or prescription remedies didn’t work!

You may have tried one of the many over-the-counter or prescription head lice removal remedies, and many of our clients have. But which ones are the best? Are they safe to use on my child’s scalp? How can I be sure I’m using them correctly? Why are there still live bugs on my child’s head after I used them? If you’ve asked yourself any of these questions, we can help.
Unfortunately, most of these head lice treatments are difficult to use correctly, can be expensive when multiple treatments are necessary, and may contain compounds like malathion, lindane, pyrethrins or permethrin, whose safety and efficacy have been called into question. Many parents turn to them, desperate for a shortcut to killing the lice with minimal effort.

In addition, some of the products come with combs that are, well, less-than-adequate for the job. Those plastic nit combs belong in the recycling bin, period.

Head lice removal is a tedious job when done correctly, and most parents don’t have the time, the skills, the tools or the desire to physically remove the lice, nymphs and nits that plague their families. If this sounds like your situation, call The Lice People at 905-760-9292.  Our Toronto head lice removers are waiting to help you.

I called another head lice removal service, and they said I needed hundreds of dollars of house cleaning services to make sure the lice don’t come back.

I want those critters gone, NOW!

If you want head lice removed quickly, let us do it right the first time. We’ve seen many cases where families have turned to the pantry for folk remedies like mayonnaise, vinegar or olive oil, or to the bathroom closet for Vaseline and a shower cap. They feel better, thinking they’re doing something that will work overnight, until they realize that they wasted valuable time that could have been better spent on effective head lice removal. And as a bonus, they’ve got a kid who’s feeling miserable because they had to wear a salad dressing on their head or spent hours trying to be patient while their parents struggle to remove sticky petroleum products from their matted hair. Don’t even THINK about getting out the camera for this particular family memory.Parents will do just about anything to try to find an instant and inexpensive lice removal cure. If such a thing existed, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. If you’ve tried a folk remedy that caused more problems than it solved, call The Lice People at 905-760-9292 for all your lice removal needs.
