    Hey Everyone, oddly enough, I can't find this answer online. Hoping people can help. I've read that rubbing alcohol kills bed bugs and eggs. I've confirmed this. It's working great. My question is - if I pack up a bunch of toys into a garbage bag and stray a bunch of rubbing alcohol all over the toys and in the bag, then close the bag so it's air tight, will the fumes eventuality kill everything in the bag?

    Thanks in advance!

    Alcohol is a contact killer. The fumes may have some minor effect but you really need to apply it directly to the bed bug for it to be of use.
    People use Nuvan strips in sealed bags for a similar treatment.

    Nuvan strips are probably less flammable than alcohol fumes
