I was cleaning up my japanese maple tree yesterday and came across this tiny branch, lined tightly with two rows of what appear to be some kind of larvae. Anyone know what I'm looking at here?

Those look like eggs to me, and I'd squish them!

That is terrible advice wihout knowing what they are. Although Katydid eat leaves don't they also eat insects like aphids?
