PIns and Needles 20 ~ ALARMING!!!

It's so alarming, the effect of what happens when you treat your specimens with insecticides to keep off ants and dermestid beetles... the iridescent ones turn a funny shade of brown and for the first few seconds you can't help but go... OH EFF, what have I done? The effect is of course, temporary and the colours soon return, as you may see on the drying right-side wings of my two Rajah Brooks (trogonoptera brookiana) specimens here.
Oh and on the bright side, I may be making another trip to the Curve tomorrow... so, new display case, maybe?
