Topic - coffee vs creepy crawlies

davidbeynon - on 23 May 2013
Caffeine is apparently highly toxic to insects and arachnids, and slightly less toxic to humans. Ticks and midges should keel over when exposed to levels of caffeine that humans would shrug off (or at least survive).

So, my question is this: Is it possible to drink enough coffee to make your blood poisonous to creepy crawlies, while remaining alive and functional.

Or am I safer sticking with deet?
