Working on this one...
I sure would like a specimen of this one or another specimen of the same species in alcohol. Any chance of that?

 
Possibly?
I have never dealt with the collection side of insects at all though. I am aware of the "70% alcohol" deal but know nothing about how to actually go about it etc.

These barklice are literally in my garden so they aren't going anywhere.

 
I never take killing lightly...
even insects - but with creatures this small it is often necessary. You could send me some specimens in rubbing alcohol (cheaper than Everclear) in a small leak proof vial. You could even send them in glyceraol which is not flammable. The main thing is that the specimens not dry out. Folks who send me specimens often get homemade cookies in return.
