The “1-2-3 step” process to make “insect-proofed” taxidermy mounts

Step 1 – Mount Saver Glue Additive

This is the first step in the Mount Medix long-term taxidermy insect safe program. The Mount Saver Glue Additive is simple mixed into the glue at a rate of 1.5% by weight. Mount Saver Glue Additive is compatible with all common taxidermy adhesives. The Glue Additive can be used with pastes, two-part epoxies and glues without changing the set-up/dry-time or the adhesion properties of the adhesives. It can also be used to mix in PU foam. The PU foam is then under air pressure through drilled holes blown into the hollow areas in horns/antlers and the boss at a Buffalo or Muskox. In combination with step 2 and 3,  this treatment will eliminate the mount as a food source for insects and their larvae. Comes in size 0,473 and 0,946 liters. Read More…

Step 2 – Mount Saver Hide Pre Soak

The Pre Soak additive is simply mixed into cool water that is used as the presoak or rinses. 1 tablespoon in 4 litres of cool water is enough. Any wet tanned hide can be rinsed or washed in the solution. The solution can also be used as rehydration in dry tan applications. For some added protection, the Diluted Pre-soak can be sprayed on the hide, as a moistening agent before mounting. This treatment will clean-up and eliminate the mount as a food source for insects and their larvae.Comes in size 0,946 liters. Read More…

Mount Saver Hoof and Horn (H&H) is a specialized formulation of Mount Saver designed to penetrate the soft fatty tissue inside horn cores and soft areas in hooves.  These areas are notoriously hard to access an often contain residual tissue that will attract dermestid.  If H&H is injected or applied into these hard-to-reach areas, it will render any residual tissue inedible to the dermestid. The H&H will make the tissue non-interesting for dermestids and is designed to avoid potential damage by applying the H&H during the mounting process. Read More…

Step 3 – Mount Protector

The final step in the “1-2-3 step” to ensure insect-free taxidermy mounts is the Mount Protector.

Simply said, it’s like furniture polish for taxidermy. Mist it on and wipe away any excess. Mount Protector will eliminate the taxidermy mount as a food source for insects and their larvae. When there is no food, there will be no damage from insects. This product also contains conditioners to prevent drying out of the hair and hide, as well as make the mount easier to keep clean. Mount Protector will leave the mount smelling fresh and clean.  Mount Protector can be used on most mount surfaces, including hair, feather, antler, horns, hoof, paws and even habitat. When used in conjunction with other Mount Saver products, Mount Protector can provide years of worry-free protection against insect infestation. Note: We do not recommend using Mount Protector on fish without testing its compatibility with the clear coats and finishes on the fish before use. This product will not create a tacky build-up and can be used multiple time s a year for the life of the mount.

Comes in sizes 0,473, 0,946 and 3,76 liters.

Treating of insect-infested taxidermy mounts

The effective solution based on natural products

Probably because of global warming, the people behind Mount Medix have seen insect infestation in trophy mounts escalation the recent years. There are millions of taxidermy mounts in hunter’s home, trophy collector, museums and schools that have never been “insect-proofed” or protected for insect attack. Suddenly and without any warning these mounts show signs of insect attacks.

If you as a professional taxidermist receive calls about insect damage, you now have an effective solution based on natural products to eliminate insect infestation in taxidermy.

For a extermination job you will need:

Mount Saver
Mount Saver is a product created specifically for the taxidermy industry to effectively wash away the insects, larvae and eggs which infest the mounts and cause damage. Furthermore the active ingredients will eliminate the mount as a food source for the future. Mount Saver can be purchased and applied without a pesticide license. Mount Saver is easy to use, leaves behind a pleasant odour and will clean and remove dust and debris from the mounts.

  • Mount Saver Pro Ad is specifically designed for those mounts that are delicate and can least tolerate regular treatment from the water-based  products.  This is especially true if the mounts have fine hair or feathers, are freeze dried mounts or have other concerns about mount integrity. Mount Saver ProAd is a premixed container of the Mount Medix active that is added by the user to a customer provided gallon of acetone, denatured alcohol or methyl acetate.  The most common solvent used is acetone because it’s easy to acquire and it evaporates quickly.  The primary reason for the solvent-based product is the lack of water.  Water can be damaging to some mounts or just create a lot of extra grooming work like with a bird or mammal with fine hair, because water-based product mats down the hair or feathers.  This product is a taxidermy chemical specifically designed for this purpose, unlike household or commercial cleaning detergents that are not intended for use in taxidermy .  The active ingredient in Mount Saver is a blend of essential oils – not a harsh synthetic chemical. A treatment with Mount Saver Pro Ad will wash away insects, larvae and eggs and eliminate the mount for the future as a food source for insects and their larvae

    Comes in in premeasured 177 ml bottle to be added to 3,79 litre of solvent like acetone, denatured alcohol or methyl acetate.
