FOR TROPHY COLLECTORS

Attacks from moths, dermestid beetles, mites, etc. is a big threat to taxidermy mounts. It has been a fast growing problem the last years, maybe because of global warming?  For more than 10 years 10,000’s of trophy collectors, museums, hunters, etc. in the USA have used the Mount Medix product program to protect and maintain their valuable collection of taxidermy mounts. For those that already have had insect infestation, the Mount Medix products have exterminated the insects and saved the mounts.

The ingredients in the Mount Medix products are approved for use in the European Union and all products are registered with Safety Data Sheets in the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). 

As none of the products are categorised as “pesticides” it’s fully legal to use without an applicator license. All products are absolutely safe to use. The Safety Data Sheets can be downloaded from the menupoint “INTELLIGENCE CENTER”

  1. Protection

If your trophy mounts have never been treated, they can suddenly and without warning show signs of insect attacks. Look for “sawdust” and loose hair.

Extermination

Treating of insect-infested taxidermy mounts

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

Mount Saver is a cleaning agent created specifically for the taxidermy industry to effectively eliminate the insects, which infest the mounts and cause damage. 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. It is safer and less damaging than using dangerous pesticides often used by exterminators lacking taxidermy knowledge.

For the extermination job you need following products:

Mount Saver Hoof and Horn is a specialised 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 and often contain residual tissue that will attract dermistids.  If H&H is injected or applied into these hard-to-reach areas, it will render any residual tissue inedible to dermistids.  H&H is designed to avoid potential damage by applying the H&H during the mounting process and is used for the treating of infestation. Comes in size 16 ounce (0,473 litre). Read More…

Mount Saver ProAd is much like the original Mount Saver except it is specifically designed for those mounts that are delicate and can least tolerate regular treatment from the water-based Mount Saver.  This is especially true if the mounts have fine hair or feathers, are freeze dried mounts or have other concerns about mount integrity.  Like the original Mount Saver, its specifically used to rid mounts of damaging insects.  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.  Like the water-based Mount Saver, the ProAd and will wash away moths and dermistids in all forms of their lifecycle, including the eggs. Furthermore it will eliminate the mount for the future as a food source for insects and their larvae

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 products mats down the hair or feathers.  This product is a taxidermy chemical specifically designed for this purpose, unlike household or commercial pesticides that are not intended for use in taxidermy and which do a poor job of eliminating the infestation. The active ingredient in Mount Saver is a blend of essential oils, not a harsh synthetic chemical.

Comes in a pre-measured  177 ml bottle to be added to (one gallon) 3,79 litre of solvent like acetone, denatured alcohol or methyl acetate. Read More…
