Description

Did you know that only humans can get head lice? Or that these insects feed on blood 5 times a day? Perhaps you've heard that they prefer clean hair...? It's a myth! Find out about their habitat (your head!), anatomy (slightly see-throught) and habits and why if you see one, you should run a mile!

¿Sabías que solo los humanos podemos tener piojos? ¿O que estos insectos se alimentan de sangre 5 veces al día? Quizá conozcas el mito de que prefieren el pelo limpio… ¡no es verdad! Entérate de cómo son, qué comen, cómo viven y entenderás por qué cuando veas uno tienes que… ¡echar a correr!
