Insect Collecting Jar, Glass, with Ethyl Acetate (#1108, 1116, BZ0068)
Put down insects the proper way with our Glass Bug Collection Jar. Each jar has a white metal screw-top lid that features a "Poison" label for safety and identification, and a layer of porous plaster at the bottom of the jar. Includes a 30ml bottle of Ethyl Acetate, commonly used as an insect killing agent. It is also useful for relaxing, preserving and de-clumping specimens. Instructions for killing-jar use and SDS sheet included. (EE0068-30)
To prepare for use, pour about 1 oz. of ethyl acetate into the jar, screw on lid and wait until plaster is fully saturated. Then, pour any liquid remaining on the surface back into the container of ethyl acetate. Recharge jars as needed.
How it works: The layer of porous plaster at the bottom of the jar absorbs the killing agent and permits fumes into the jar. This is the preferred collection method for entomology.
Available in 8 and 16 oz sizes. Jars are also available without the dispatching agent.
8 ounce - 2 -7/8" Diameter x 3-5/8" Height (73mm Dai. x 92mm H).
