Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Greasy specimens
Posted by cyprinoid on 23-04-2011 06:48
I see that some of the flies in my box have become very greasy. First I thought maybe it had something to do with stomach content or maybe pollen or other external ‘pollutants’.
But I also have reared specimens that have turned out this way so in those cases it can’t be stomach content and probably not any other pollutant... I usually do not pin flies while eating chicken wings 
Could it be that the specimens have not dried enough before I have moved them to the box? I think the box is pretty air-tight (entosphinx trype).
