Can lice jump?

Head lice are a wingless human parasites that are uniquely adapted for feeding and breathing on human heads. They have six claws designed to hold on very tightly to strands of human hair and they don’t like to hold onto things like furniture or pets. It is just for human hair. They cannot jump, they cannot hop, they cannot swim, they cannot fly.  They just crawl around. from hair strand to hair strand. But they are very good at crawling around and they are pretty fast at it which is how they transfer from one head to another head on a strand of hair.
