Insect eggs proper name?

I guess it depends on what type of insect you're talking about. For instance, eggs of parasitic insects are called Nits. However, I believe this only applies to lice or creatures in the same sub-species.


Why do head lice live close to the scalp?

Head lice require a certain level of heat and humidity to survive and for their eggs (nits) to properly incubate. Because it takes 7-10 days for the eggs to hatch, finding nits more than 1/4 inch from the scalp usually are not viable. However, some can incubate longer, especially in more humid climates that replicate the ideal environment.


Do nits bite?

I had lice when I was like 8 and I know quite a lot about them. I kinda found it interesting that bugs were living on my head. Anyway, yes they do bite they eat your scalp. that causes sores that itch. That why your head itches when you have lice.Another answer:Actually nits don't bite, lice do. Nits are the eggs, and some authors limit the definition to dead lice eggs. So the eggs are either hatched already or incapable of hatching. That makes things confusing when schools have "no nit" policies, and only nymphs and adult lice spread. Abandoned egg shells and dead eggs (often after using lice shampoo) cannot spread nor bite. However, there is no way of knowing by appearance whether the eggs are viable or not.

How do you remove nits from your own hair?

Can you use a nit comb if you don't have nits?

No, the combs remove the adult head lice but not the "nits" which are their eggs, which they stick to the base of the hairs. So if you have nits, coming out the adult lice will not remove the infestation as more lice will hatch out from the nits. As well as combing the hair you need to kill the nits with some proprietary medicine.
