I have some sort of infection in some mead i have already bottled. Murky at the top. Doesn't taste bad, but looks bad. any ideas on how to kill the bad bugs and clear up the mead while still in the bottle. Second choice would be to dump the 20 bottles i have into a bucket, treat it with something to kill the bugs, then rebottle. Any suggestions?

If you have any photos, that can help us to determine what it might be. Sometimes people confuse yeast rafts, lees, or floating pollen with infections. Those are harmless overall. But if it is an actual infection like mold, dumping is the only option. No reason to risk one's health over a beverage.
