Thread subject: :: Storing flies in alcohol

I do store all my specimens in alcohol now.
In 1.5ml Eppendorf tubes the smaller ones and in bigger tubes the rest.
Take care with the caps, they does not fit perfectly sometimes, and the alcohol evaporates. The tubes can be put in hermetic jars filled with alcohol.
Even it is good that you have sufficient room in your freezer for your jars.
