Scientific forensic labs have a relationship with bug collectors. The entomology division of forensics, the branch that studies insects and violent crimes or law, utilizes small jars known as killing jars, to collect and kill the insects with minimal damage. Insect collectors also use the killing jar to preserve their collections for further processing. Ethyl acetate is used and the vapor kills the insect. At times, alcohol is used in vials for very small or delicate insects with the same effect. Other labs grow insects from eggs stored in clear vials, which allows for observation during the growing process.
