i looked at the Live Monarch web page ... that Sanitizing Spray ..... do you use it ? or have you heard if it really works ? am i to believe that by spraying the caterpillar's food, i.e., milkweed ... it can 'cure' a caterpillar already infected with OE ? or, if you spray a newly hatched (but dry) monarch before you release it, it will kill any OE spores on that monarch ? i'm not sure i understand all i'm reading there btw, i am picking up one of those microscopes from Radio Shack tonite ... thank you, i had no idea that one would be so inexpensive have you seen any of my "MI-42" butterflies yet?

I can't ever line up anything under the lens properly. Maybe it's just my eyes - I don't know. I wear contacts too. Any suggestions are welcomed. Susan
