The hog louse, Haematopinus suis, is an insect that is usually four to six millimeters long and is grayish-brown with dark brown and fl markings.
As a chewing louse, the hog louse has a wide head necessary to support the relatively large mandibles that are an essential component of its mouthparts.
The male is slightly smaller than the female hog louse and is characterized by a fl streak on its ventral surface.

 Chewing gum
Chewing gum Chewing gum is a type of confectionery which is designed to be chewed, not swallowed.
Unusually for a confectionery, chewing gum has some health benefits; unsweetened (sugar free) chewing gum stimulates saliva production, and helps to clean the surface of the teeth, whilst even sugary gum may be helpful, as the sugar dissolves out very quickly.
An old wives' tale states that chewing gum, if swallowed, may take up to seven years to become fully digested, and that swallowing gum could also result in the substance becoming lodged in the oesophagus.

Louse infestations on horses are widespread and louse parasitism is of clinical significance in equine medicine.
If lice were not found by inspection with the naked eye, the trunk surface was combed intensively using a fine louse comb (conventional human louse comb) on both sides of the neck and the area under the mane.
Insecticides to control louse infestations on horses need to persist for 4 weeks or they have to be reapplied, as there is no reported ovicidal efficacy for any insecticide currently used.

Rather than needle-like mouthparts that pierce skin, chewing lice, as their names imply, have large, opposing mandibles used to feed on hair fragments, skin, and blood.
Because the entire 20-day louse life cycle is spent on the hosts, louse control primarily involves isolating and treating infested dogs with insecticides.

 Lethbridge Research Centre Report - January 5, 2001 Page
Even with brushes alone, there was a dramatic drop in the number of chewing lice for the first 17 days, suggesting that just the actual scratching activity had an impact on the louse population.
Unfortunately, because the louse population entered a stage of natural decline about three weeks into the study, the final louse population of the animals with no backscratchers was about the same as those with backscratchers.
Further work is expected to study the control method, and look at the possibility of using alternatives to insecticides in conjunction with the brushes, a method that would be a valuable option to organic producers as well.
