From what I understand Iodine will not kill redbugs. It should stun them though, enough to where you can blast them off the frags with a turkey baster. You will also need more than one drop per gallon. To kill them you will need Interceptor.

and by a couple I hope you mean about 40 drops to do anything and a minimum of 10 minutes. I dont know how effective it is against red bugs specifically but lots of stuff unseen come flying off. Pretty much all the coral dips except revive are iodine based so I figure lugols being one of the more potent forms of iodine should be as good as any. Never lost one coral from using it as a dip (or supplement).
