Possible bacterial infection
by: Mary

Thanks Karen for your insight...I have been to that site a viewed the videos on wing repair. I was afraid I had an OE outbreak among my butterflies, but am feeling more comfortable that it is not. I had two butterflies that appeared healthy, just could not fly....very weak, I euthanized them. I started inspecting all the plants and found one that looked as if some type of bacteria was growing on the soil top. I removed that plant. Nothing else appeared amiss, hopefully, none else will be affected. Have had 6 more emerge, all very vibrant. .....where do you find healthy wings for repair?

I have never had to repair a wing. Maybe some of my visitors have ideas....
