Dermestide beatle problem...

Submitted by mike spencer on 07/28/2004 at 09:50. ( )

I have a customer that just picked up a turkey mount from me last night. He told me that he had a fox hide at home that he had found dermestide beatles in. He threw it away. How can these monsters be killed. He and I are both very concerned that they are going to destoy his turkey mount. Is there soemthing he can spray the mount with that will protect it?

I would appreciate your help.
