    Great for the Price

  • I'm a beginner butterfly collector. I'd followed a tutorial to make my own spreading board out of balsa wood. While the result got the job done, this worked better and was easier to pin. And I didn't have to make it, of course. These are so inexpensive that you can buy several for the cost of spreading boards at other sites. This worked great for me, and I think it would be good for a casual/beginning collector or a project.

  • Shipped very quickly. I wish it was a little deeper so you could spread your butterflies and moths a bit higher on the pin. I just spread a luna moth on my board and there's hardly any room underneath him on the pin for labels. The channel is also only good for medium sized Leps, though you can easily (if messily) carve the channel a bit bigger in one spot or carve a new tiny channel along the side if you have to.
    Great for beginners

      Insect spreading board, 12x4"

      This is an inexpensive, firm-density polystyrene board (like hard, closed-cell styrofoam) that is designed for spreading insect wings prior to mounting. It is ideal for allowing butterfly wings to spread and dry. The spreading board has a body slot that is 3/8" deep and varies from 1/4" to 1/2" wide, depending on our supply.

      Place a moth, butterfly, or other insect's body in the indentation on the spreading board, and pin a thin strip of paper over each wing to hold them flat until they dry out.
