In the process of moving to new quarters live herbarium beetles were
discovered in some backlog material (stored in improper conditions).  What
is everyone doing these days for pest control?  The present concern is to
specifically eradicate this pest from a relatively small amount of
material.  However, I would be interested in broader dicussion of
prevention/treatment methods also!
