about

I’m a mother.  I’ve been there and done that.  The first time I found out my daughter had head lice, I had no clue where to start.  My first reaction was to panic. I had never dealt with lice before.  I didn’t even know what they looked like.  I immediately glued myself to the computer, researching lice and how to get rid of them.  After spending a hefty sum of money at the drugstore for over the counter lice removal products, I sat my embarrassed daughter down and combed…and combed….and combed.  Two hours of combing in the morning, then two more hours of combing at night.  Every day.  For a week.

I remember thinking to myself, “There’s got to be an easier way to do this!”  My time was precious.  As a school teacher and mom of 4 little ones, combing for lice and nits was an excruciating experience for both my daughter and I, not to mention the rest of our family.  I had tried every home remedy know to mankind: mayonnaise, mouthwash, vinegar, prayer.  And my daughter endured it all, bless her heart.  In the end, none of it worked and I now have copious amounts of mouthwash stored in the closet.

After more lice infestation encounters (including yours truly), I was definitely finding better, more accurate methods for ridding head lice and nits. When relatives and friends started getting visits from our blood-sucking friends, I really started to give serious thought to starting a service that would help others who were going through what I had been through.  Not only to help others get rid of their lice and nits, but also to educate and inform them about prevention.  That was when Nits B Gone was born.

Today, Nits B Gone is an in-home service.  We know that convenience is important to you and that is why our technicians will travel in unmarked vehicles to your residence and treat your family members there.  We currently serve the Western Michigan region, but will make arrangements to travel further if needed.  Our goal is to provide timely, accurate service while informing you and your family the ways to prevent another lice infestation.
