This is not about forceps abuse, but I just made a webpage from information that Michael Wall provided me that describes one way to easily make slotted forceps Making Slotted Flat Forceps

 

Happy to incorporate any other options or even opinions on the use of slotted forceps

Last year’s Clemson University Arthropod Collection Better Museum Practices Poster was about respecting the value of insect pins. If you didn’t get your complementary poster, they will be available at the Clemson University Entomology Club booth at the ESA Annual Meeting.

This year’s theme for the CUACBMPP is about Forceps Abuse Awareness and Prevention. To start things off and help raise awareness I figured we could share photos or stories of abused forceps so others can watch for the signs (see below). A complementary Forceps Abuse Awareness and Prevention poster will also be available at the Clemson University Entomology Club booth at the ESA Annual Meeting. 

 

Cheers, 

 

Mike
