Good Questions: Airing Out Preserved Insects?

I bought these butterflies on ebay and should have realized that they would be preserved somehow. Now my whole apartment smells like a museum! I've got them hanging out in the window with some baking soda and all the fans on in the hopes that they'll air out a bit. Any suggestions as to how to get this smell out fast? I'm not crazy about sleeping/eating/living in a chemical fog. Thanks for your help! Ruth

This is difficult without knowing what the butterflies were preserved with...anyone?
