Pheromone Traps

I use the plastic pheromone traps (Universal Moth Trap & Multipher#1 from 
Great Lakes IPM) to collect Sesiid moths. I normally check the traps daily, 
however, the late Herman Flaschka of Georgia used these plastic traps with 
anti freeze, both as a killing agent and a preservative. He only checked the 
traps weekly, and in some cases, monthly.

Does anyone know of the reference that explains the use and the chemical 
process to clean the specimens? Also, what condition of the specimens after 
the entire process?
