what are these eggs!!!!???

hyazvacJuly 11, 2014

I know I'm not the first to hang my laundry on the line to dry. but since i started doing that, this is the third time i've found what i think are bug eggs on my clothes. they are about the size and shape of a poppyseed. I should note that i've only found them after they have been folded, put away, and am just about to wear the article of clothing. I gasp and throw it half way across the room, feeling like some creepy bug might crawl out of my shirt.
but today was the WORST. as i was changing my baby's cloth diaper, i found them ON HIS DIAPER that has been at the bottom of the clean diaper bucket for about 4 days.
what do i do???!!?!?!?

In my experience, large masses of eggs laid in weird places are usually from some sort of moth. I've watched them lay big rafts of eggs on window screen.

Wow, how long did they stay hanging on the clothes line? I would think thats not something you'd see after just a few hours outside. I would make sure to bring in your laundry as soon as its dry.

It's interesting, highlander, but this is a very common issue....egg masses on laundry hanging out to dry. Who knows why.
