Lice (order Phthiraptera) are hemimetabolous insects that are distributed worldwide and have approximately 5,000 valid species divided in 4 suborders: Amblycera, Ischnocera, Rhynchophthirina, and Anoplura. They are permanent and obligate ectoparasites of birds and mammals, and their life cycle is completed on the host’s body.
