Yellow eggs on bottom of leaf outdoor grow

I found this cluster of eggs on the bottom of a White Widow leaf. I’m hoping it’s Ladybug eggs, not pest caterpillars, but my Google photo search mostly shows caterpillars of moths or butterflies. I have the leaf in a baggie right now. I don’t know if I should burn it or put it back :thinking:


I’m not sure that uploaded…

I’d check the bottom of every leaf on every plant you got. Find that sucker and all it eggs and hang it’s dead body on a spike as a warning to all them other bugs thinking about invading my domain.

They sort of look like stinkbug eggs.

There’s a lot that do that. Butterfly, moth, etc. None of which you want on your plant.

I have no idea what laid those eggs but if you find it take pictures of it before you impale it.
I’m guessing a moth laid those

Yes, very neat and organized

Thank you! I had seen a ladybug on that plant this morning and was hoping against hope that she had laid eggs :relaxed:

Searched every leaf. No sign of the culprit :rage:

I actually still have the leaf in a baggie I can’t burn until I know for sure…

They to hatch them and see what get

After a female lays her eggs , they will hatch in between three and ten days, depending on ambient temperature. The larva will live and grow for about a month before it enters the pupal stage, which lasts about 15 days.

Do you think they’ll hatch on the leaf in a baggie? I’m scared to just turn them loose…

Maybe I could put them in a mason jar with air holes…
