I don't know if you blokes hang onto fur waiting to get the best price, but years ago I did and lost a 10kg bag when weavils got in and turned it into kapok.

And I know that wasn't the question - just been wanting to tell someone for ages.

Yeah heard of that happening. Keep mine in well tied up rubbish bags in the attic. Haven't had weevil problems so far (touch wood). Plenty of bait left lying around to keep on top of the mice - imagine they could chew into fur bags if in destructive frame of mind.

Years ago when shooting and skinning foxes in Western Australia for the fur market, used to put the skins in a big plastic rubbish bag and gave it a good  dose of bug spray to get control the fleas and other bugs, worked well, aired the skins out and sold to the skin buyer.
Cheers
