I usually find these yellowish looking eggs on new citrus leaves. Anyone know what they are?
Looks like scale.
Probably a swallow tail egg.
I had the privilege of watching one lay her eggs a couple weeks ago…was awesome! Now I go around looking for the “Bird poop” creatures.
Most definitely Swallowtail egg. Good ID, Jennifer. Jennifer, I am having chicken coop photo withdrawals. To she who has the BEST chicken coop ever. Just sayin’
I agree. Pull it off and squish it!
Thanks everyone. I do think it is probably a Swallowtail egg. We do have a lot of caterpillars that show up around this time.
If it is flat on the leaf, it’s a scale. If it’s round then it’s probably the swallowtail egg.
I was pruning my gooseberries today and found this:
Any idea what bug they belong to? The length of covered part of the twig is about 1.25’’
Bingo, Definitely pest eggs
Yes! Thanks. They will not have a chance to hatch in my garden
Most likely a moth.
I didn’t know if they were good/bad insect eggs so I crushed it just to be safe.
Also typical of moth egg clusters.
Both examples above could be of noctuid moths, nearly all species are pests.
The amount of eggs laid in one place is a pest clue.
Yes, there are true bugs that lay egg clusters like that.
