how do you sterilize Monarch butterfly eggs?

One way is to use bleach to sterilize eggs. Butterfly eggs may be contaminated with disease particles when the female butterfly lays the egg. The first thing a caterpillar usually eats is its egg shell. Since they may become diseased upon eating their egg shell, sterilization is a good precaution for those who raise butterflies either for fun or profit.
