Drying large beetles


Recommended Posts

You need to let him dry. That's about it.
I recommend pinning him, and spreading his legs and antennae nicely for display, but only if you have entomological pins. If you don't have such pins, do not pin! You can keep the beetle relatively fresh in a closed box up to a month in the freezer if you want to obtain pins or pin it sometime later. Otherwize he will dry out and it will be difficult to arrange him for display.
