Thread subject: :: Pinning flies and wasps and some curious questions.

for bottom of the boxes we can use:

1) stryofoam - more cheaper.
2) itex - can you tell more about this?
3) polystyrene - expensive, and what about his duration?
4) cotton - messy and not pratical..
5) plastazote foam - is it the same as styrofoam?

> I'm considering this : Plastazote foam bottom not glued by paper, glass top ( . More cheaper and it can be closed very tightly (I think..)

> For wooden boxes, if I consider one... perhaps it will be in brown impregnated alder (mahogany)

So for keep the flies (before/after) we will need:
* ethyl acetate (to "sleep" the flies -- I read somewhere that is
dangerous to inhalate this chemical! :| )
* pins (micro and normal - I prefer the black ones.)
* itex, or styrofoam, or... Plastazote foam...
* gross paper (to make the ettiquetes)
* wooden boxes (pinus or alder..), glass top OR plastazote foam bottom
not glued by paper, glass top..
* more later... cabinets - very expensive!
* a pencil or I can print the labels.

anything else? I think that's all! :)

Thank you.
