I teach biology at a high school in rural Texas. I'm interested to
know the best method for cleaning the meat off dead specimens. In one
of my college anthropology classes I remember the prof referring to a
bugbox that the dept. maintained to clean specimens.

I was wondering if anyone could give me any info about such a setup.
What species of insect is actually used? How often do they need to be
fed? How expensive would such a setup be to maintain? What is the
approximate size and structure of a bugbox?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
