    Unhappy Bugz?

    Does anyone know how to get rid of the bugs that infest marten and squirels? They remind me of a centipede, only smaller. Thanks

    Default Moth Balls

    I have used moth balls in a gunny sack, paper bags,or trash bag for green skins, don't make it air tight or keep it in heat as your skins may rot. The other way is to tan them or sell them but make sure you moth ball them before bringing them to a tannery so as not to infest the other customers.

    I put the unskinned animal in a trash bag and spray either raid or a fast acting flea/tick insecticide into the bag. Usually let them hang to thaw in the garage for a few hours. Most bugs are dead by then. I always wear gloves when handling the skins since the bug juice is bad for us too.
