what's the best way to remove ram horns, I'll be using bugs to clean.
Double black bag for a couple weeks.
Note: Hit with a hammer in the direction you want them to come off...
The last set that I removed were put into a bag along with a little water. I was able to remove the horns after three days. Maybe next time I will take pictures, if I remember. Good luck!
Re: Re: removing ram horns
can I give it to the bugs first
Never had one not come off using this method. 48 hours is prolly 99% for me.
Really depends on the value of the horns and how hot/hungry your colony is. If it were something of value like a Bighorn Sheep...rot in a bag is only way I would risk. IMO.
You don't want to risk the bugs messin' up the sheaths.
Rot'em off, clean them out and borax the inside.
I posted a picture of a "test antelope" in the bugs a few years ago. Overnight they had eaten from the inside and up the sheaths almost an inch. Antelope is softer horn but you get the point.
