Those are aphids on your milkweed are not eggs. If you look close at them you will see they have legs and move.

RE: This sunday visitors

Thank you for pointing that out, the white ones I agree, I have never seen yellow aphids. I usually use soap and water and hose them away. But want to be sure if those yellow material are eggs or not eggs??

RE: This sunday visitors

They're aphids, blast away.
