Scientific Facts to Support "The Crazy"?

All right, so I'm writing this fic and I'm attempting to look through stuff on Google, but I wanted a second opinion on anything I might find.

I need to kill bugs. Not just bugs on the ground, but bugs that burrow into people's brains to lay their eggs.

Now, the bugs I've created have shown to be immune to everything my people have tried thus far and it would almost be better to simply shoot the infected folks now. As the eggs are spread out, they can't simply be cut out. Radiation might be too much, unless someone can explain to me about the different doses of radiation or I find something through Google.

What I was considering was a take on the soap and water will kill bugs approach.

I know that if you squirt bugs with hot water and a bit of soap, they'll die a less chemically intense death. I wanted to know if there was a chemical composition close in nature to soap, that wouldn't harm a human, but would act sort of like an antibotic? Is there something I need to look for in particular, because I'm just shooting blindly here.

If there are any other suggestions on how I can kill these buggers, I'd love to hear them.

I'm glad this comm's still here, by the way. I joined ages ago when it first opened, and haven't had a real need to work through a technical science issue until now. : )
