Nit-Sized Creature Creates Huge Business Opportunity

Many companies believe the economic recovery is moving at a slow pace, but not Larada Sciences. The company has been expanding, and aggressively working with entrepreneurs and investors across the country who wish to open their own service businesses – and providing their communities with an effective solution to a pesky problem – lice. Head lice are tiny, wingless, parasitic insects that live on human heads and can infest anyone with hair. One in twenty children in the United States has head lice right now. Eggs hatch 1-2 weeks after being laid. It takes about 14 days for lice to mature; once they are mature enough to reproduce, the infestation is rapid. If head lice weren’t scary enough, 60 percent of the itchy pests are now resistant to one or more common treatments, according to a new study published in the “New England Journal of Medicine.”
