I am injecting larvae, and I would like your opinion on using Nitrogen vs. Compressed Air. What are the Pros and Cons? My understanding thus far is that nitrogen is extremely pure and that is minimizes oxidation reactions. Is the amount of nitrogen that I'm injecting into the animal negligible? My concern is that injecting the animal with nitrogen may turn on pathways or have some type of reactivity.
Thanks in advance.
