Preservatives and chemicals
All insect collections need some protection against Museum beetle and mites. They should be regularly inspected for infestation. It is very difficult to kill Museum beetle eggs but this can be done by giving each specimen a few seconds in a microwave (minus the pin!) or 3 days in a deep freeze.
We also list other chemicals used in the preparation, maintainance and storage of collections.
