How to protect the taxidermy mounts against insect attacks?

Step1: Use “Mount Protector”

Mount Protector is simply applied to all the mount surfaces, then wiped with a soft towel to remove excess. For long-haired species, work the additive into the bottom of the hair all the way to the hide. After cleaning and drying, the mount will have been returned to its original condition, with renewed natural lustre and sheen, without looking wet or oily. Most importantly, Mount Protector will prevent insect infestation and sheds dust and dirt when used for routine cleaning. Mount Protector will leave the mount smelling fresh and clean.

Step 2: “Use Mount Saver Hoof & Horns”

Apply the Mount Saver Hoof and Horn to the horns and under the boss (for instance Cape Buffalo and Muskox).  Drill very small holes into the horn cavity and inject the Mount Saver Hoof and Horn into the cavity.  The Hoof and Horn are formulated to penetrate into the tissue that may be present and prevent insect damage.  If dealing with an existing mount where damage is present, the horn cavities are a typical source of infestation and the same process can be used.  Make sure horns are totally sealed before injecting Hoof and Horn. After applying a liberal amount of Hoof and Horn you can optionally fill up the hollow areas / pockets in the horns & under the boss with PU foam (under pressure). Then reseal the application holes with Epoxy and touch up with paint. Then the horn and boss will be a very hostile environment for any insects / larvae to breed / live. 

A similar process can be used when applying the Hoof and Horn product to mounts with hooves.  As with the horn cavities, removing all soft tissue from a hoof can be impossible.  A small application of Mount Saver Hoof and Horn can prevent future insect damage.

Step 3:  Use “Taxidermy Anti Fade” 

The final treatment is not a part of insect protection treatment, but Mount Medix “Taxidermy Anti Fade” will stop the colour fading or yellowing that occurs with all mounts as they age and are exposed to natural and artificial light. Spray mount to completely moisten all surfaces but do not over apply. Wipe with a soft towel to remove excess. Do not allow droplets or puddles of product to dry on the mount. Allow to dry and groom mount if necessary.

Helpful Hints: Clean the mount very well with Mount Protector prior to application. Test on a small area on the back side of the mount as this product may slightly change the colour of the hair.

How to maintain a taxidermy mount insect-free for a lifetime?

You only need an “easy-to-do” DIY annual (or semi-annual) treatment with Mount Protector. This treatment will ensure that the taxidermy mount will remain in perfect condition and will prevent insect/bug attack throughout its lifetime.

Besides this, the taxidermy mount can be kept looking fresh and pleasant to look at with “Anti fade”, “Antler & Horn Conditioner” and “Eye Cleaner & Polish”. 

The 5 products for the maintenance treatment are:

  • Mount Protector
  • Mount Saver Hoof & Horn
  • Taxidermy Fade Protector
  • Antler & Horn Conditioner
  • Eye Cleaner & Polish

Antler and Horn Conditioner is a Silicone Based Synthetic spray the will provide long-term protection to all types of antlers and horns.  It can be applied to both old and new trophies for years of natural colour and sheen.  This conditioner will not become tacky and rancid with age, like any plant or vegetable oil.  It will also last much longer than other synthetics, like WD-40, that are commonly used to moisturise antlers and horns.  This conditioner can also be used for cleaning antlers and horns, including the removal of other products that may have become tacky and problematic.

Note:  It is recommended that a small trial area on the back side of the antlers and horns be treated to be sure the product will not remove colourants that have previously been applied.  This is necessary because some taxidermists will apply dye or paint to horns and antlers to achieve a more uniform colouration.  The Mount Medix Antler and Horn Conditioner may remove some or all of this previously applied material.

Product usage:  A 4 ounce (118 ml) bottle will treat roughly 50 medium sized deer antlers, so very small amounts are used to achieve excellent results.

The ”Mount Medix Eye Polish and Cleaner” is a specially developed product for the taxidermy industry, for the specific purpose of making the glass and polycarbonate eyes look natural and real.  Its main purpose is to clean the eyes without streaking, so they look and sparkle like a natural eye. The Eye Polish and Cleaner also contains carnauba wax, just like high quality automobile polish, to make future cleaning easier while maintaining the “natural sparkle”.

It can also be used by taxidermy owners to remove dust, soot, smoke residue and other unwanted material that could be adhering to the mounts’ eyes.  The process is very simple. First wet a cotton swab with the cleaner and make an initial wipe of the eyes to remove heavy unwanted residue.  Dampen a second cotton swab with the product and polish the eyes to a like near, natural sparkle.

A 4 fl. Oz (118 ml) bottle should clean 100 sets of eyes, depending on the level of initial cleanliness.
