The definition of the term “nit” has caused some debate in the scientific community, creating some confusion. For instance, a nit refers to numerous egg stages, such as fertilized eggs that will hatch, eggs that have already hatched, and dead embryos.
For parents, this broad definition affects schoolchildren attending “no nit” policy schools, which states that children cannot return to school until all nits have been eradicated.
Some believe that the broad definition of nits is unfair because only fertilized eggs pose a threat to other students. Because of this, some scientists now refer to hatched eggs as nits, while others maintain the broad definition with clarification. In any case “no nit” policy or not this is by far the best nit removing comb on the market.
