Looking for someone with dermitide beetles. Anybody know of any, and the process I should take next. Shot the deer Saturday, and would like to know what to do next with the head. It is still in my yard, and I need to know if I should freeze it, cut the eyes and brain out, etc. Any help would be great!!

If you are not going to do anything with it right away, do put it in a freezer. I think Cabelas should have a kit for boiling out the head. Use an old pot and a turkey fryer burner for this task and do it outside in any case. Trust me.

The chemicals you need arent expensive. I am getting ready to do one myself.

Do a search for "beetles" and you will find several who do it.
