Do your taxidermy mounts have bugs?
We have an answer for you... If your taxidermy mounts have bugs, and you are seeing some signs of damage here is your answer.
First the problem that you have is insects that destroy the hide, hair, and horns on taxidermy mounts and tanned skins. This problem cannot be ignored or you could lose these pieces completely.
Symptoms to this problem will be hair loss, sawdust like dirt around the horns, hoofs, feet, and on the floor or furniture under your taxidermy mounts. You may even find what looks like little rice crispies on your trophy mounts, these are the shell of the bugs as they shed them to grow.
Reason that the bugs are now more of an issue is tanneries are no longer using arsenic, or anything else with residual protection. Now your mounts have no protection against these hungry, and destructive insects. Your taxidermist has no control over them, nor do exterminating companies know what to do with taxidermy mounts and bugs. Every year thousands of trophy mounts are needlessly destroyed by bugs.
