Gary, There are several ways you could tan the critter. My first choice would be EZ100 sold by WASCO . Its simple to use and does a great job. You could also pickle in vinegar , salt and water. (1gal vin. , 1 gal water , 1 lb salt ) Pickle for a minimum of 3 days. Nutralize in bakeing soda and water (3 heaping tablspoons per gallon of water ) Rinse the skin well , drain and apply a cream tan of your choice. Either way will work for the tanning but neither is a bug proofer. Right now there is nothing on the market that will "bug proof " a skin. Your best bet with a small mammal is to put it in a glass case and put some moth balls in the case with the mount. You can hide them in the dirt so they wont be seen. Bob C

Thank you
