If you follow my advice, you’ll be free of lice!

If you have ever suffered from a head lice infestation and the stigma that goes with it, then you know how nice it would have been to have help.

THE PICKY ONE is Cape Cod and the Islands ORIGINAL head lice removal service. Maryellen Kumiega has been treating families since 2009. Having personally experienced a head lice infestation with her own children and realizing there was no local support for this problem, THE PICKY ONE HEAD LICE REMOVAL SERVICE was started to help local families get rid of head lice and their eggs (nits) while saving them time and money.

  • Pesticide Free
  • Discreet
  • Non-toxic
  • Confidential
  • In home service

Our personal goal is to provide affordable and local head lice help for Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket families and visitors.

The Picky One services are insured and your satisfaction is guaranteed.

Other services available are follow-up head checks, pre and post summer camp head checks, and advice from personal experience.
