- May 3, 2012
Another option to avoid mold is to complete the drying of bees in a dessicator. All chemistry departments have them...perhaps you could borrow?

I have used Lysol to get rid of spiderweb-type mold on specimens, you must let them dry for a period of time after.

Is there any non-toxic way to kill fungus on dried bee specimens? Is there any way to treat the boxes so they can be reused?
I do not have access to a freezer in which to store my specimens. I am going to try a desk lamp for complete drying this summer, and hope the mice and earwigs in the lab don’t like their bees cooked!
