An alternative is to simply place the ant in a small container, and then freeze the ant. By freezing the ant for 48 hours, the ant is quickly dried and preserved for later DNA analysis at CAS.
Once you've done that, you can ship and mail the specimens to:
Department of Entomology
California Academy of Sciences
55 Music Concourse Drive
San Francisco, CA 94118
Be sure to include your name, your email address, and, if possible, the collection number you assigned to your ant (the one with your initials and a number) in the Ant Collector app. That way we can correctly map your specimens to the data you sent from your phone!
