Can alcohol keep bed bugs from biting?(6 posts)
This isn't about the kind you spray, but the kind you drink.

For those who missed it in the wee hours...
In my experience, 91% alcohol will kill the BBs on contact but WILL NOT prevent them from bitting.
Hi FedUp-- Please read the article I linked to!
I have a friend that is an alcoholic and he get's bitten but does not react to the bites.
As for rubbing alcohol I use 91% type and it will kill on contact but does not keep them from biting and once the alcohol has dried it is useless.
I keep some next to my bed and spray the sheets with it every night and since I no longer can sleep through the night when I wake up I feel the bed for possible bugs and spray again. Also sleep with light on now.
The headline was a teaser. If you read the article linked above, you'll see that alcohol had some interesting effects but did not "prevent" bites.
