    How do I prepare the animal skull for art play

    I was given by a friend who found it in the hills. But it keeps getting insect husks lefts behind. I have dried it out removed and visible tissue. Cleansed gently with small brush and borax and 1 yr on it's still happening. I've also tried bleach which I was worried may damage the bone so only gently cleaned rinsed and dried again any suggestion to make sure fly larve stops will be greatly appreciated

    Perhaps you could use insect repellent or bug spray? If you don’t want to use it directly on the bones,maybe you could spray it on cotton balls  or cloth and put it into a box with the skull to store it for a while. I would have thought that bleach would do the trick.
