We have had this 3 times. The first time we didn’t get them out of the
bedding and the carpet and they came back. To rid them of the furniture and
carpet you can use a spray bottle with bleach water in it.
The first time I used the rid from the drug store but by the third time I
had all the side effects that those type chemicals have and we used several
different things. The one that worked the best was putting vegetable oil in
the hair, making sure you get the scalp and all the hair. Then put a plastic
grocery bag over the top of the hair.
Kinda like when you would put a towel
on your hair, just done with a plastic bag. Make sure it is patted down all
around the head. Then leave it on for 24 hours.
You then have to comb it out
really well to get rid of all the dead bugs and dead eggs.
Also if you blow dry the hair they hate that. They will not live in the
heat. But after you blow dry your hair you need to spray the bleach water in
A neighbor had used mayo on the hair. I think it works like the veggie oil
just with mayo instead.
Hope this helps,
