[Histonet] Beetles Head sectioning

Hi all:

Does anyone has the proper procedures to obtain cryostat and/or paraffin 
sections of beetles head?. I have not been succesful at obtaining one. My 
samples cut well but during collection from the cryotome it tends to curl so I 
tend to loose the brain tissue. Additionally, is there any place that I can send 
my beetles head samples to be sectioned? This is to do basic brain measurements. 
I would really appreciate all possible feedback and pointing me to the right 
references if possible.
