Licenders, an all-natural lice removal company, has launched KLOOC–Keep Lice Out Of Camp. The program offers parents the opportunity to bring kids to any of the three Licenders locations for free head lice screenings. Adie Horowitz, owner, says this prevents unknowingly spreading lice to classmates and family. By using Licenders, kids won’t have to be sent home from school. Licenders clinicians go through extensive training and are FDA-cleared. Licenders has contracts with more than 100 schools in the tri-state area and is located in Connecticut, Long Island, and Manhattan.
