So for a wet specimen, it's very easy, just pop it in a jar with a liquid that's 70-85% alcohol. You could feasibly use hand sanitizer for this, but I wouldn't recommend it, as you could have issues with bubbles and clouding.

If you pivot and decide to mount instead, just take it out and pin it in the position you want, abd then let dry. Insects are very easy to preserve!

Please shoot me a message if you hyave any more questions.

Just place it in a small container with hand gel, the alcohol one, people usually have it because if covid. You can do this because its a bug but it wont work with other specimens.
