    Try UAA. I don't know if they do it, but some colleges use beetles in thier biology labs.

    youngtrout, did you find one? If not, you can contact Ken Hansen who owns & operates Kodiak Bones and Bugs Taxidermy. Here's his website, http://www.bonesandbugs.com/

    I'm sure he knows the bug cleaners in Anchorage and may have actually gotten some of them started. On top of doing the cleaning work, he also sells bugs to others who want to get started in the business. Good choice to get the beetle cleaning done. I took my buffalo skull to Ken because of the great quality work.
