Thinking about using rubbing alcohol to treat your bedbug infestation? READ THIS FIRST!
Why rubbing alcohol will NOT take care of your bedbug problem.
The use of rubbing alcohol in the home to eliminate bed bugs has been classified as an extreme fire hazard. The user should be made aware that even when used in a spray form, the application of rubbing alcohol significantly increases the risk of accidental fires.
"The main problem with utilizing rubbing alcohol as a bed bug treatment is that it will fail to continue to kill the bedbugs one it has already evaporated or dried."
Furthermore, there are no residual effects when using rubbing alcohol as a sole method of bedbug extermination, (this means that it does not continue to kill bedbugs after it has already been applied, so every single insect must be contacted by the rubbing alcohol in order for the treatment to be effective.) Due to the principle of fecundity, or the fact that bedbugs produce many more offspring than they actually need, such a method will never be completely effective in the long-term treatment of pests. It is not feasible either to expect to contact all of the hiding bed bugs, or to keep up with the rapid growth of the bed bug population with such a manual method extermination. It should be noted that bedbugs can reach a population size of over 5,000 bugs in under six months from an initial population of less than 40 bed bugs.
