We had a scare with this earlier this year. 

The first sign of trouble I treated both kids hair and bought spray to keep to away. I also washed and vacuumed everything and sprayed the whole house down. We also had to quarantine their stuffed animals. 

Now that I think about it, the stuffed animals are still in bags in the closet and that weeks ago. LOL

Tea Tree oil Shampoo! And make a spray with the oil to put on jackets, hats, backpacks and gloves. Also for children with long hair always put up in a pony tail.

Do you mean lice or another bug?  What everyone suggested is what I would say.   We have not had it *knock on wood*.

Yikes! That has not happened yet (knock on wood). The only thing DS has come home with was the stomach flu. Not fun.
