Let me start by saying this: I don't blink an eye at blood and guts, I regularly eat food after the 3 second rule has well expired, and I drive a 4x4 truck, but bugs, particularly parasitic ones (ticks and such), absolutely gross me out. Well, I just finished breasting a few ducks and I caught a duck lice crawling up my finger. I got him off and after the wave of anxiety had subsided, I got to wondering if those things can be transferred to humans. If you've ever cleaned a duck you probably know what I'm talking about, but if you don't I have included a picture of one (gives me the willies just looking at it). Do any of you know if duck lice can be transferred to humans and live in human hair? Thanks for any insight you have on this. Meanwhile, I'll be in she shower washing my hair.
