To most people, the beginning of the school year in New York means bright September days, shiny new lunch boxes and meeting friends.
But to Dalya Harel it signifies one thing above all else — the start of head lice-hunting season.
Mrs Harel, 48, is founder of LiceBustersNYC, one of a dozen or more lice-removal businesses in the New York area run by Orthodox women.
Her competitors include Adele Horowitz’s Licenders, Susan Sherman’s LiceBGoners and Abigail “The Lice Lady” Rosenfeld.
