And I'm going to leave it in the freezer for one and a half hrs till it dies. I learn that it probably wont feel as much pain because they're exothermic. Right? Anyway, I got 2 pins with me and a foam board to pin it on. Am I doing everything right so far? How do I pin the wasp? Please tell me steps. Any info is welcome :)

Biggest issue I see with freezing is leaving them in the freezer to long (days/ weeks), then they seem to be more damaged when they thaw minnesota4h.com/ distribution/ youthdevelopment/ DA6892.html uky.edu/ Ag/ Entomology/ ythfacts/ 4h/ unit1/ pinins.htm

Yeah... now you have to pin it... (this is gross but...) you have to pin one through it's head and one through it's butt... TIP: A faster way to kill them with less pain is to find a mason jar and get a cotton ball and dip it in alcohol and then put the bug in there...
