Q.Nits can be transferred from one head to another.
A.False. Nits CAN NOT be transferred. A nit can only be removed from the hair by manual removal with fingers or a quality comb, or a hair with a nit attached falling from the head. Please note, a nit not on a head is extremely unlikely to ever hatch. It requires an incubation period of 7 to 10 days with an uninterrupted temp of 90ish degrees in order to incubate and produce a living nymph. Even if this happened, a head would have to be in the exact place the nymph hatched at the exact time it hatched in order to find a blood meal within minutes. One in a million chance!
