Are Pubic Lice Endangered?

The only human disease to be eradicated from the planet is smallpox and it is widely believed that the next will be dracunculiasis, caused by the guinea worm. But, a piece I recently read makes me think that pubic lice (Pthirus pubis) has a squirming chance at becoming #2. 

A summary of a recent journal article appeared in Clinical Infectious Disease reporting on a study in which an STD clinic reported a 26-fold drop in pubic lice between 2003 and 2013. The reason for the near eradication wasn't some magic new lice treatment, but possibly pubic hair shaving. 

I guess making pubic lice homeless really exposes them to inhospitable conditions and they perish--not a bad thing for someone who dreams up extinction events for pathogens. 

I wonder if the pubic lice think of Brazilian waxing the way the dinosaurs viewed that comet?
