I won't guess at what your insects are, or where they come from, but
if you determine that the ivory objects are themselves infested, you
may wish to treat the objects by isolating them in an oxygen-free
chamber or envelope. This will destroy both adults, larvae, and
eggs. I believe you'll find more information about anoxic treatments
in the CoOL archive, or you may visit
