Clove oil is a powerful sedative on crustaceans.  Don't know anything about
its use in the field, but understand photographers use it to sedate
crustaceans for professional grade, close-up photos because it sedates
without effecting color patterns (= motionless subject in full natural color
patterns).  No idea what other effects might be, or how long the effect
