How Fast Can Lice Move?
Lice can move pretty fast. If you see a louse on your shirt, you will notice that it will try to crawl towards your head very fast.
Lice can cover a few feet within a minute. Well, if they couldn’t move fast, it wouldn’t be possible for them to move from one host to another… and survive for such a long period of time.
Plus, this is why wet combing is suggested, because in dry hair head lice can move really fast here and there. When your hair is wet, it will be difficult for lice to move fast and it will become easier for you to catch them with a lice comb or nit comb.
So, they can move fast and they don’t look lazy when they crawl.
