How Do Lice Spread? 

Lice cannot hop, jump, or fly. Whew! That's good news. The most common way they spread is through direct head-to-head contact with an infested person.
Oddly enough, the head louse can only prey on humans. Cats, dogs, and all other forms of animals are immune from the itchy little parasites.
Also, it's relaxing to know that lice are unable to live in your home environment (couch, carpet, furniture, pillow, sheets, mattress, car, movie theater, airplane). They will die in 24 hours of being off of your head. So if you can get them all off of your head, they will die in a day.
