Nymph: the nit hatches into a baby louse called a nymph. It looks like an adult louse, but smaller. Nymphs mature into adults about 7 days after hatching. To live, the nymph must feed on blood.
Adult: the adult louse is about the size of a sesame seed, has six legs and is tan to greyish-white. In people with dark hair, the adult louse will look darker. Female lice, which are usually larger than male lice, lay eggs. Adult lice can live up to 30 days on a person's head. To live, adult lice need to feed on blood. If the louse falls off a person, it dies within 2 days.
