Lice are more commonly transmitted from human to human. If you're around children who attend public school, you are at risk of acquiring a scalp-full of them.

If you ever sleep in hotels, you are at risk of bringing bedbugs back in your suitcase.

Good luck preventing that - you'd have to just remain a shut-in forever and never invite anyone onto your property. And, the only way to get rid of bed bugs is to *kill* them.

This is so true. My oldest boys had head lice. They were in grade school and brought the little buggers home...since I am a neat freak to the max and had a brand new baby I was very upset - with a lot of vacuuming, washing, spraying and shampooing the lice were gone in no time at all...not a pleasant experience...if you know anyone who is a teacher or works for a school district ask them about headlice - no one is immune to headlice unless you live in a vacuum.

Why?
She has her life preferences for whatever reason.

Your OP is strange; it's just a different lifestyle than yours.

You can use natural oils on them, not harsh chemicals.

Man-made materials are virtually all oil-based. Crude oil is largely the result of prehistoric plankton (animals).

My son will not eat honey. It is more than "exploitation of bees". He has other reasons.
I don't think it's extreme at all. If a person is a vegan, and they are avoiding products that are derived from animal sources, honey is an obvious product to avoid.

Not a vegan, but I know many and most do not eat honey.

Well now you know one who does eat honey (once in a while)......local, honey derived from humanely treated bees. I don't have a problem with it but respect the opinion of those who do.
