Default Free dermestid beetle cleaning: Central Texas

Awhile back, another TBHer (for the life of me I cannot remember who) gave me this beetle box. I have established a healthy colony of dermestid beetles used for cleaning skulls. Iím keeping them alive with an occasional hog or coyote skull, and some hot dogs. I would like to make the bugs available to anyone who wishes to use them free of charge. My only request is that you skin and flesh the skull before dropping it off. Less meat = less stankiness = happy wife.

Send PM for location, but Iím in Williamson County.

I have a deer skull but it still has the hide on it, does it need to be removed first?

Yes please. It will stink way less and the beetles will be able to clean it much quicker. Just get you a real sharp knife (or even a cheap box cutter), and you can skin it in no time.
