With the unique combs in the Bug Buster Kit, your usual shampoo and any conditioner you can detect and clear head lice and remove nits, following the instructions included in the Kit. The bevel-edged teeth of the specially developed Bug Buster comb comfortably pick up head lice which the more rounded teeth of other fine tooth combs miss. The teeth are precisely spaced, close enough to swiftly lift out tiny newly-hatched head lice, whilst still allowing easy movement through the hair.

  • Lice cannot become resistant (immune) to the Bug Busting Method.
  • Bug Busting fits in with weekly hairwashing to keep you on top of head lice.
  • Bug Busting is a safe, no-pesticides way to cope with head lice routinely and in a crisis.
  • You only need one re-usable Kit for the whole family – many families use their original Bug Buster Kit for detection and cure for at least a year. *

The health and education charity, Community Hygiene Concern, an organisation dedicated to solving the head louse problem, pioneered wet combing in the 1990s.  The charity performed the R&D to identify the best wet combing method, leading to the production of the ultimate Bug Buster Kit 1998.  This action research is described at https://www.chc.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/12/Louse-Detection-methods-and-Comb-Design.pdf.  

Today UK Health & Beauty markets an exact replica of the Bug Buster Kit 1998. 
The Bug Buster and Nit Buster combs are registered designs.
