    As homework we've been asked to research parasites and more specifically, head lice. One question is: "What are the difficulties that they face in their environment?" or something along the lines of that. I can't find anything about that so, can anyone help?
    Much appreciated!

    That's a bit of an odd question for homework. I'm a vet student so I don't know much about human lice but thinking along the lines of lice on domestic animals I would suggest thinking about the following:
    temperature and moisture fluctuations
    different climates and adaptations
    activities undertaken by the host: swimming, etc
    transmission between humans

    I hope this helps but its quite a bizarre question really
