Oddly enough, a year or so ago I reported on some experiments I carried out
with dermestid larvae and PDB--and someone posted a response accusing me of
cruelty to animals. So at least one person out there does object to killing
dermestids, at least by 'inhumane' methods.

	On the other hand, I don't know any entomological collection
managers who encourage these critters to feed on specimens...  :-)
