    Question for pinning beetles

    Make relaxing fluid. I take Lysol concentrate and add some to water. Putting it in a sealed Tupperware with paper towels wet with the relaxing fluid softens them up perfectly the amount of days depends on the size of the beetle. I like pinning them with the legs out, I prefer pins because it is tried and true and makes inspection of the underside easy. If it drops the price of my big specimens! I don't care, beetles with the legs all folded up under and not pinned don't make any sense to me, unless you are just saving it to sell one day.

    Welcome! Well decayed oak mixed with 30 to 40% of your rotted maple leaves would be more suitable. I haven't used maple leaves only oak so far.
