How long does Harkametcin take to kick in?

Post by Aalice » Fri Oct 08, 2021 5:39 pm

Hi. Just treated all 4 of my bucks for lice. Having many pet rats throughout my childhood this is my first time having to treat lice.

I'm assuming they don't cross species with us humans? They give me the heebie jeebies...!

Anyway, how long will it take to notice the effects??

I would think they die within a few hours, and any more will die as soon as they hatch. In a few days you'll find scratches healing up well.

Lice are species specific, so no risk to humans. :)
