ECTOPARASITES

Lice


Ectoparasites

Order: Phthiraptera (LICE)

Two Orders (head width, mouthparts differentiate)

(1)Mallophaga – (Chewing Lice)

i.Chewing parasites with mandibulate mouthparts.

ii. Feed: sloughed epidermis, feathers and sebaceous secretions.

iii. Hosts: birds (most) and mammals.

iv. No species are parasites of man.

(2) Anoplura – (Sucking Lice)

i.Bloodsucking parasites of mammals

ii.Haustellum mouthpart

iii. Solenophagus (all lice)

iv. Hosts: mammal (humans have 3 species)

(1) Dorso-ventrally flattened body.

(2) Claws adapted to grasp the host

(3) All lice are wingless

(4) Hemimetabolous Life Cycle

Egg  Nymph  Adult

Louse Control

Body Lice – change and wash clothing in water hotter than 60C. In epidemic situations, 10% DDT in talc dusted on between body and underclothes (other insecticides – 1% malathion, 2% temephos, 1% propoxur, 0.5% permethrin). Protect from future infestation with insecticide treated clothing.

Head Lice – soap and water washing for adults and nymphs. Combing to remove nits or shaving head. Insecticides, but resistance in many areas of the world.

Pubic Lice – insecticidal emulsions and lotions. Resistance not as much of a problem. 1% permethrin – reapply because eggs not killed. 0.5% malathion – kills eggs too.
