Learn how to mount your own beetles! By popular request, this is the follow-up kit to my Butterfly Mounting Kit. This kit comes complete with everything that's hard to find. You supply a piece of styrofoam and some paper towels. Illustrated step-by-step instructions plus a link to an instructional video will guide you.

Kit includes:
Insect Handling Tweezers
5 real beetles for practice (or 10, if you decide to purchase the upgrade)
Mounting Pins
Rehydration Chamber
4 pages of fully illustrated instructions, plus an online instructional video

You don't need any special skills to get started; just don't be squeamish about touching real dead bugs. :) A steady hand is helpful, but with some practice, I think anyone can do it! With this kit, you will learn how to take dried beetles and spread out their legs, wings, and antennae for display.
This kit is made for adults and scientifically minded teenagers. Makes a great educational gift!
