We maintain a colony of dermestid beetles year round! Beetle cleaning preserves the delicate cartilage inside the nasal cavity which is lost through simmering/boiling processes. Beetle cleaning is the most natural form of skull cleaning. Price includes degreasing and whitening. *Note* For Elk, Caribou, Moose, and any other animals that may have signs of maggot infestation skulls will NOT be beetle cleaned due to possible contamination to the dermestid colony.
Cleaned only means the skull is beetle cleaned, degreased, and whitened.
Plaque choices are typically walnut or oak however, any custom plaque can be ordered for an additional cost. If you have a specific idea in mind Naturally Wild Taxidermy will work with you to design your custom mount.
