Excerpt
INTRODUCTION Lice have been closely associated or linked with man for * centuries. Infestation with lice occurs today in many countries and causes important public health problems in a number of both developing and developed countries. The various forms and species of human lice depend for survival on the human body, as they will not normally feed on other animals. In addition to the fact that all species of human lice are * nasty vermin , one form - the human body louse - acts as a * vector of two serious epidemic diseases: typhus and relapsing fever, both of which may cause the death of many * people if not treated. There are three species of human lice: the human body louse, the head louse, and the crab or pubic louse. Each form or species of louse presents a different public health problem. These three species can all live on a single person and do not compete with one another as they live on different parts of the body.
