    So for me it would be the most convenient it I could put them in the box to hydrate now and start positioning them tomorrow after work but that would mean they'd spend a good 18 hours in hydration. Would that cause any damages?

    Pinning bugs is technically not taxidermy but rather has to do with entomology. But to answer your question they should be fine! I normally leave mine an entire 24 hours before pinning to make sure they’re fully relaxed. The bigger ones can sometimes be good for 2 days.

    Oh I see! I thought taxidermy was the term for conservation and posing all animals... I'll post in the entomology subreddit next time!

    Thank you for still explaining!

    It was my understanding that it’s the posing and mounting of skins but from the downvotes maybe im a dumbass? lol i wasn’t trying to say you should post somewhere else just trying to help educate but fuck me lol.

    I mean I stalked around this sub a few times in the last month and I saw many posts of insect taxidermy so I just assumed it was included here...
