Round yellow insect eggs?

pvasshep(6a)June 15, 2013

Hi -

I just found these round yellow insect eggs underneath a chenopodium leaf and am wondering what they are.

Thanks.

I suspect caterpillar eggs.
Have they hatched yet? If so, please post an image of the kids.

I didn't post because I don't know! :-) There are too many possibilities. They are probably moth eggs or one of the true bugs.

Whatever they are, they're beautiful. Hard to think that they may grow into something that devastates your plant(s).

Kevin, I agree! Insect eggs are among the most beautiful and mysterious little vessels in the world. Even more so if examined under a simple dissecting microscope.

Here is a link that might be useful: Check this out!

i figured as much rhiz ....

but i always feel bad for a poster.. when a post hangs out there with no response ... speculation if better that ignoring them ...

like i said in some other post.. argue with me.. debate me.. but God forbid .. dont ignore me.. lol ...

BTW.. woohoo makes a presumption that many of us dont ... not everything will devastate a crop ... such is a population issue ... if that is all your eggs.. so what ... if that type of deposit is on every leaf.. watch out.. lol... the real issue is how long the cycle takes ... and how fast they multiply .. etc ...

Ken...LOL

I didn't presume. That's why I used the word "may.." Perhaps I should've emphasized. I've come a long way in the last couple years of wanting to kill anything crawling in the garden.

Now... I still spray BT religiously and i will be spraying the hell out of everything with soap and neem if I get my yearly whiteflies -- late summer awaits!

Pretty awesome pics Rhizo. They're all laid out so "tidy" and geometric.

Ken...I don't usually make a post unless I have something reasonably productive to offer...unanswered questions usually stay at the top so that more people get a chance to view the problem....instead of sinking.

Are you being a little 'touchy '? I'm glad you caught this post before it disappeared, my good friend.
