Head lice bugs can only live for about 48 hours off of the body. Head lice nits can live for four to ten days off of a host.
You can sleep on top of the mattress cover. One of the main purposes for the mattress cover is to place a barrier between you and any head lice bugs that may be hiding inside the mattress.
Your mattress can be treated using several different products. You can use our All Stop Mattress Covers, All Stop Professional Steam Cleaner, All Stop DE-Stroy Pest Control Eco Dust or our All Stop Liceadex-EX Home and Bedding Spray.
