My son says he keeps finding these bugs in his hair. They aren’t lice, ticks or the like, but we can’t quite tell what it is.
We are hoping you can help.

Dear Curious Dad,
This is most definitely a Human Louse and you can verify that identification on BugGuide.  We would urge you to get professional treatment for your son and the family members and you should also notify your son’s school.
