Lemuel, when my son was in high school, he had dreadlocks. It soon became a haven for head lice and with the help and suggestion of a family friend, the stuff called Advantix that is used on our dog was most effective to use a drop on his head. Left on overnight and in the morning all the lice dropped out onto his pillow, yes literally! It worked. And his head was fine. My son and I saw all the black little things all over his pillow like they were zapped out of his hair! So there! We were hesitant at first to try this method, but the friend assured us that it was tried on their child and it worked. So we went ahead and gave it a go. Hope this may help others who are facing this menace.

Hi Pliktarious,

I found these comparisons in Wikipedia:


Temporal range: Early Cretaceous–Recent

False colour scanning electron micrograph of a flea. CDC image.
Scientific classification

Latreille, 1825

And the Bedbugs:

Cimex lectularius

Scientific classification

C. lectularius
Binomial name
Cimex lectularius
Linnaeus, 1758

So it appears there are so many species in these groups, it seems highly probable they may be related given their similar parasitic nature and feeding habits. It just makes me wonder how these tiny crawlies get there so long ago, but it is interesting with the bedbug family how they are so robust and managed to survive. As to evolution, they seem to stay as a group and find host to keep going. I find it remarkable how these tiny cryptic creatures manage to be around, then again our human population and migration over many continents are certainly giving these creatures more hosts to breed and thrive. So it is no wonder why we consider them as problematic pest.  Thank you for bringing up the fleas, I forgot about that and what about head-lice, lol! Where did these things come from? Are these some creatures that jumped the ocean and creeped around on the land in some ancient times of evolution on this planet? Their tiny size makes them so hideous and obscure, it's makes these look like giants of evolutionary survival. However, the Homo Sapiens managed to evolve with the help of Andon and Fonta (see Paper 63 TUB), we are so bettered due to the work of the Life Carriers. Anyhow, it made me curious and amazed by what scientist are discovering even though it has taken some years for them to find it and get some results.

Thanks again, Ron, Rene and Occerpa about the message regarding diabetes. I believe that soon I will recover from diabetes because I am very disciplined when I am concentrating on a healthier diet, like now. Basically I greatly decrease the consumption of carbohydrates. I weighed up Tuesday morning, May 21, 2019, again in the consultation I had with the nutritionist. It already decreases 4 (four) kilograms from the weight I had when I started the diet 1 month ago. I believe that in another month I will reach my ideal weight by losing more than 4 kilograms. A big brotherly hug to everyone.   Julio.


Obrigado, novamente,  Ron, Rene e Occerpa sobre a mensagem em relação à diabetes. Eu acredito que logo eu vou me recuperar do quadro de diabetes pois eu sou muito disciplinado quando estou concentrado em uma alimentação mais saudável, como agora. Basicamente eu diminui muito o consumo de carboidratos. Eu me pesei terça-feira de manhã, 21 de maio de 2019,  novamente na consulta que eu tive com a nutricionista. Já diminui 4 (quatro) quilogramas em relação ao peso que eu tinha quando eu comecei a dieta há 1 mês atrás. Eu acredito que em mais 1 mês eu vou chegar ao meu peso ideal emagrecendo mais 4 quilogramas. Um grande abraço fraternal a todos. Julio.
Hi Pliktarious,
                          When I was a small boy growing up in Wales, my mother always impressed 
upon me never to put on another boy´s school cap, because of the possibility of catching
head lice. (Pediculus humanus capitis.)  I remember experiencing this problem on more than 
one occasion.  My mother used a steel comb for the hair and she killed these little blighters
with her fingernail.  Your head itched like mad when you get them. It´s very contagious, hence
the admonition not to wear another´s cap.

Bed bugs are something else. (Cimex lectularius Linnaeus)   I am fortunate never to have
experienced these.

Flease, as I underestand it, can only come from our domesticated friends, cats and dogs.

Children suffering from head lice is still very common on all strata of population.

To all the members who wrote in this topic!

Thank you for your support!

It is really apreciated to know that i'm not alone in this situation.

Right now my father is ok and he will leave hospital soon.

For 1 month he cannot do anything hard with his arms because of an injection he had.

God bless you guys!

Tony Jr. Thanks for keeping you informed about the health of your father Antonio. I joined the group in prayers for their father's quick recovery. What came to my mind is that this is a time for your father to rest, to rest a lot. A big brotherly hug. Julio


Tony Jr. Obrigado por manter informados sobre a saúde de seu pai Antônio. Eu me junto ao grupo em orações para a recuperação rápida de seu pai. O que me veio em meus pensamentos é que este é um momento para seu pai repousar, descansar bastante. Um grande abraço fraternal. Julio.
Hi Sue, are bedbugs and  flea's the same species.I remember when I was a child in the 1950s we got fleas in our hair and my mother put DDT in our hair to kill the bugs.DDT was a miracle pesticide in those times and I get the chills  when I think about it .

Hello my dear friends, this morning I came across this astonishing scientific discovery. Do mind,  it took some thirty years of studies for this to come to its findings and I am really amazed! When I was living in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia,  of all places,  in a block of high rise units, our family had a nasty experience with these hideous critters, they are truly sneaky and blood thirsty! I got to see them under my geological magnifying glass and they are the most alien looking creatures, they appear to be looking like mean voraptuorus machines! Very hardy and intent in their ability of speed and hiding. A good steamer machine got them under control among other protective measures we took to get them from eating us! After some online searching, we also found how they can last up to twelve months without a blood feed, Here is the link below to discover they even go back to the dinosaur era, and now I am seeing how hardy they can be and why studying these creatures can help find ways to control their encroachment on humans. I am still reeling from this amazing study. Hope this gets sorted as I sure don't want us humans have to get so many bites as these critters gave some of our family members in our time in our Darwin unit.


Much love to you all.

Glad to know that Antonio is doing fine and that he will be back soon. Indeed, it is not perhaps enough said that we should take home Celestials advices about health issues. Dr Mendoza can be of great help to Antonio in conselling him about his diet or mental attitude so as to avoid repetitive heart attack in the future. We are fortunate to have at hand a specialist in healthcare that can see beyond what a family doctor often times cannot diagnose. Domtia

@StevenG, Excellent counsel. I can not stress enough the importance of following our spirit doctors' advice. The fused ones can compile a book of all the accounts of spirit's precise diagnonsis. Their credentials put us all to shame! My list is long but I do wish to give special thanks to Dr. Mendoza and his consorts. They have a battle at hand. Urantia mortals are stubborn and too arrogant to accept spirit advice, but this too will change. Wendy

Tony, thanks for keeping us informed, and for being there for dad.  That means everything to Antonio, the fact that he can run things by you that he may not have asked the doctors.  Tony, after a few weeks, when things are more regular for dad, give us an idea what medicines are prescribed to Antonio.  I like to run these things by our spirit doctors on high, and They are so kind and willing to do so.  When I was in York this past April, They pointed out some small bumps around my waist and we spoke about a reaction to some heart medicine I was taking.  They recommended that I cut them in half or skip a day in between doses.  The fact is, I didn't know what they were talking about, because I didn't have the bumps.  A few days later here comes the bumps around my waist.  I was scanned and diagnosed when they were too small for me to feel them.  I reduced my dosage and now I can hardly feel them, if at all. 

I'm sure dad's on a strict, well-planned course of action.  But down the road we can get some of that EXPERT advise.  Thanks again for everything you're doing for dad.
