Sorry, I forgot to mention 48 hours is usually long enough at minus 25C.
We are receiving some major donations, some of which have had some dermestid damage. We have regular freezers as well as an ultra-low freezer. Does anybody know of adverse effects of putting drawers of specimens in an ultra-low freezer before the drawer
is brought into museum?
