New breed of super lice

CREATED Oct. 28, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- There is a new breed of super lice that is showing up in schools around the country.

The new breed of lice have harder exoskeletons and are producing stronger eggs.

They are also laying eggs at different times so that they are not as easily killed by over-the-counter lice treatments.
