When I turned this collection in for my final grade in entomology, it seemed substantial. Now it looks so tiny and sparse.
In my office I have little tins and vials of new insects to pin, but of course, they’re dried now and pinning will not be so easy without rehydrating them. When they’re fresh, their hemolymph helps “glue” them to the pin so they stay put.
I need collection boxes with flip lids like the one pictured. Bioquip has fantastic entomology supplies, and I feel a little shopping spree coming on.
