Meaning of Lice
Louse (plural: lice) is the common name for members of over 3,000 species of wingless insects of the order Phthiraptera; three of which are classified as human disease agents. Humans host three different kinds of lice: head lice, body lice, and pubic lice. Lice infestations can be controlled with lice combs, and medicated shampoos or washes. - See link


Lice in Spanish is Phthiraptera
Los ftirápteros (Phthiraptera), comúnmente conocidos como piojos, son un orden de insectos ápteros, sin alas, ectoparásitos de aves y mamíferos, que incluye unas 3250 especies. Sus huevos se llaman liendres, que los piojos adhieren al pelo o plumas de su huésped. - See link
