I have some walnut that has some tiny pin holes in it. I’m using a hypo needle to inject alcohol in each hole just to make sure that any bugs that may be there are killed. The question I have is, is alcohol strong enough to kill any bugs if they do exist? Thanks.

Don, Look at my post right above yours. This sounds like powder post beetles to me. The question is are yours alive or are the holes old/inactive. If they are active you will see tiny specks of powder fine sawdust beneath the holes.
