Rid Lice shampoo

Posted by WendyCoo 2B (My Page) on

I have been researching thrips treatments (see my post under Thrips) and thought I would purchase some Rid Lice shampoo as I thought it might be a less toxic treatment than some of the other chemicals. To my surprise I could not find that brand and when I looked at what was available for lice shampoo the active ingredients of RLS are not in the ones I did find on the shelf. I am in Canada so I'm wondering if anyone knows of a similar product that would work that I can purchase here. I have insecticidal soap and Neem Oil and Tea tree oil. Would one of them be a suitable substitute?
Thanks again.

RE: Rid Lice shampoo

Probably Neem oil is your best choice. Just make sure you make a new batch for each spraying and repeat the sprayings 3 times week apart.
