Many entomologists will now place insects in the freezer to kill them. The insect will become cold, go dormant and then die. It is pretty quick, especially if the dragonfly is already dying. It also causes less damage to the insect than putting it in the traditional “kill” jar or just stepping on it, which is not something you would likely like to do.
Thankyou I will try this I love Dragonflys this one is injured & this seems the only way to help!
Isopropyl alcohol can be used to kill most flying insects very quickly. Dilute it a bit, then put it in a spray bottle and spray it on the insect, which will quickly die.
I hope this helped!
Spraying alcohol sounds cruel; I’m sure it would burn the insect. Putting it in the freezer sounds much more humane, although I would let it die on it’s own.
