Wink Re: Bugs

Thanks guys. I feel the bugs came with the flies and the new box. I live in Phx, AZ and the box was in my vest in my family room with my deer and quail mounts. Two Quail mounts out of five were eaten dead after 15 years by “bugs” so I put moth balls in the cases and had no more problems. I also put moth ball “crystals” in the ears of the deer mounts periodically and have no problems with them. Got the idea from a taxidermist, he said “might work”?
Yes, chemicals in the habitat are a no no especially in a trout stream, so a Ziploc bag sounds good. I’ll try it and see what happens. Hope there are no more bugs in the box, can’t see any. I’ll monitor the action.
I blew the micro “bug” away when I blew out the “dust” in the box so no pics. Taxidermists have a name for them, but I don’t remember it.

I see there is a Pocono guy in the field. How is the Pohopoco stream these days, grew up fishing it in the 50’s, grand parents had a farm in Effort, Pa right on the start of it?
