The Q&A Archives: Insect Eggs

Question: Can you identify the egg

Answer: Insect egg clusters are really quite individual to specific insects. For instance, ladybugs lay a cluster of yellow, upright, barrel shaped eggs; European Corn Borer eggs are white and laid in masses on the undersides of leaves; Harlequin bugs lay barrel shaped white eggs with black rings. So, without seeing the eggs masses or having a complete description, it would be almost impossible to identify them. Sorry!
