How to kill Psocids in home collection?

My home collection infested with Psocids which eat my specimens. I use closed wooden boxes with mothball but still here they are.
I don't have access to freezer which is big enough for the boxes (or my wife allow to use for this purpose Smile )

Any idea what can I do? or how can I disinfect my collections?

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
