Hi,

Today when I came home, my wife opened the passenger door and saw a row of these funny little hairs with tiny green bulbs on the end. They were in a perfect row down the inside of the car door. Are these some kind of plant? Or I was even wondering if it's some kind of insect egg?

I attached all 3 photos I took.

Thanks for the help!

Ryan

p.s. - I forgot to say that I live in Western Massachusetts. Thanks!

My first guess is Lacewing eggs, but I never saw them on a car before!

Google green lacewing eggs and you'll see what I mean.

Yes, Lacewing eggs. We found some on the passenger door of my car one year.
