HOW ARE THE INSECT DISPLAYS MADE?
After obtaining each insect specimen from a Sanctuary or breeder they are "softened" by injecting it with a hot liquid solution, making it pliable. Its wings are carefully opened and spread onto a "mounting board" and pinned into their desired position while drying. After the insect has fully dried it is secured and mounted into its display. Each display is sealed to prevent insect infestation, which might otherwise crawl inside the display to eat the dried specimen, turning it into dust.
