    Hi all

    In America, they will wash the eggs of Monarch butterflies when they have a bad outbreak of Oe. Here’s a really good way of doing it if you do suddenly find – or suspect you have – Oe, and want to break the cycle.

    You’ve got to have commitment though!

    The bleach used could be substituted with a local brand – just make sure it’s the same concentration.
