Advertisement Hello Is there a way I can preserve mantids and jumping spiders? I just had some mantis die on me, in this case it was an orchid mantis, and it's in beautiful condition. I went ahead and I placed in a alcohol so it wouldn't spoil. I also went ahead and placed some jumping spiders that I also had in alcohol that I plan to preserve. how can i maintain the coloration for the orchid manits..or for any mantis? what is the best way to preserve them? Thanks!
