Add this to the list of ever growing reasons to praise the bikini wax - it may have made pubic lice and endangered species.

Doctors say that as pubic hair disappears, so do the crab-shaped insects that have made homes in human groins since man first appeared.

In Australia, Sydney's main sexual health clinic hasn't treated a woman with pubic lice since 2008 while male cases have fallen 80 per cent from about 100 a decade ago.

'Pubic grooming has led to a severe depletion of crab louse populations,' said Ian F. Burgess, a medical entomologist with Insect Research & Development Ltd. in Cambridge, England. 'Add to that other aspects of body hair depilation, and you can see an environmental disaster in the making for this species.'
