National Head Lice Awareness Day October 1, 2009

COOKSTOWN, ON, Sept. 28 /CNW/ - The Lice Squad, Canada's leading head lice removal service company, is offering free head lice screening clinics to help families in need and to educate the public on this common condition. Clinics are open to the public on Thursday, October 1, 2009 in major markets where Lice Squad operates in Canada.

"There is still much misunderstanding about head lice," commented Dawn Mucci, Founder and Director of The Lice Squad. "We want people to know there is a safe, effective and pesticide-free way to treat head lice."

By offering a free screening service and distributing factual information on prevention, detection and treatment, The Lice Squad hopes to bring attention to the issue of head lice. Over 1.5 million Canadians will contract a case of lice annually, and while lice is not considered a health threat, it can result in missed school, missed work, and undue stress and frustration for families. The Lice Squad's proven success at head-lice removal using a natural enzyme and the wet combing method of removal is an alternative to the pesticide-based shampoos many Canadians reach for at their local pharmacy.

Location and time details for the Head Lice Clinics are posted at A downloadable Lice Help Kit containing a kids colouring book and informative handouts for parents and educators is also available on-line.

Lice Squad is a professional pesticide-free head lice removal, education and identification service franchising across Canada since 2001. Lice Squad meets the growing demand for hands-on help and pesticide-free solutions for treating head lice. The company has set out to stop the overuse and misuse of pesticides on children and to break the stigma associated with lice. Lice Squad continues to grow because of its passion, commitment, high standard of service and excellent customer care.
