Abstract

Spinosad (Natroba) is a prescription topical pediculicide labeled for the treatment of head lice in patients four years and older.1 In addition to its pediculicidal activity, spinosad has also been shown to have ovicidal activity.2 Unrelated to other insecticides, spinosad is produced by a bacterium, Saccharopolyspora spinosa.1,2 Although it is neurotoxic to lice, it does not seem to have a similar effect on humans or animals.
