We are pleased to offer services in anoxia treatment for pest infested materials. The procedure consists of isolating the infested work from the environment by creating an individual envelope for the object - the envelope is heat sealable and impermeable to oxygen. Oxygen absorbers are then inserted into this envelope to eliminate the oxygen present.
The process is applicable to any type of artwork and is non-toxic to humans and animals, while effectively killing all stages of insect life.
Freezing has become a routine pest management method for museums. It is a non-chemical alternative that we offer and is an effective treatment for most dry organic materials such as wood, basketry, textiles, leather, and some stuffed animals.
The process involves specific preparations and achieving low sub zero temperatures, therefore should only be done by professionals.
IPM is the practice of monitoring and managing pest and environmental information to prevent pest damage to collections.
