All insects must come to an end so I was curious how I might go about drying out my dead critters to the point where I could pose them and place them in a riker mount? I have an adjustable temp food dehydrator but I'd really rather not use it for that! LOL
Years back I rehydrated & mounted already dried mantids, leaf insects, butterflies/moths/etc. but never worked with fresh material. Has anyone here done so? Also, I checked out my old mount collection which is stored at my dads apt and most of it has been eaten by something, even though they are all still in their taped shut mounts. Anyone know what eats them and how to stop it?
