	I teach OAC Biology and my students work drosophila during the
genetics section of the course. We have experienced mold problems in the
past which has killed many a culture. In an attempt to remedy this we have
ordered so methyl paraben. (a food preservative) recommended by Wards
Scientific.
	I would like advice on HOW MUCH to add to the media we use which is
the Ward's prepared blue media. Also if anyone has had mold problems and
how to overcome them,I would like to know ASAP.
