  • Was it hard to get rid of? Did you need to do more than the one treatment? Did you have to cut your hair short? Im freaking out!

  • Follow directions on the box... I think you need more than one treatment.
    You HAVE to clean and vacuum everything.
    Throw stuffed animals in the dryer.
    You can put stuff in black trashbags for a few weeks...
    Like I said you have to clean everything... The eggs are hard to kill.

    No need to cut the hair. Just have to make sure you do the treatments right,

    Oh, and yes...
    I have caught it from my son when he was in daycare.
