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
I’m not sure that uploaded…
toss that bag in the trash. or burn it if you prefer.
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.

Gotta give it props for neatness and organization lol
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

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

Searched every leaf. No sign of the culprit
Ladybug eggs look just like those eggs

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…
