black light for detecting lice

My dd's friend was sent home last week with lice. She returned to school 3 days ago. The school nurse said for everyone to check their child's hair for 2 weeks. I've heard that using a blacklight (regular blackligt light bulb, I'm assuming) will make it very eassy to see them. Anyone know if this is true?
