Default methyl paraben as mold inhibitor for eggs

I was wondering if anybody has tried this or if anybody knows of any dangers in this method? i have tons of the stuff from fuit fly culturing and it would be perfect if it had this dual use. thanks

Brent had a slight warning for using this. Basically, by using it, you might be contributing to future generations of frogs that do not have anti-fungal resistence. Without it, some eggs might fungus over while those that have anti-fungal properties pass along their genes.

*EDIT* Actually, I Brent was talking about Methylene Blue!
