On your way to Ford's head at the top of the Ford's Follicles area, you'll come to a group of swarming lice. These bugs will weigh you down, making jumping impossible. Because of this, the lice will need to be cleared before moving forwards. Take a look at the screenshot below, and the red target in the distance.

Equip your Psi-Blast and fire at this red target, it may take a couple of tries to get your aim right. This will start the fan nearby, and blow the lice away. You can now move forwards to the next area.

Later on, you will come across another group of lice, but no fan in the area. There is a bottle of barbicide however, which you can knock over by using a melee attack on the pin holding it up. This will clear out the lice. There's a similar encounter further on, where you'll need to launch a pin into the jar of barbicide using Telekinesis.
