Hi there, I have successfully grown courgettes but this year the leaves are under attack. There appears to be little clusters of yellow/brown round eggs under the leaf but I can see no bugs, beetles of any other critters. I have added a photo. Any information would be very helpful. I do live in central France.

Vine borers can be hard to see. The first sign is often wilting leaves. If you look closely, you will see small holes in the stem and droppings beneath the plant that look like sawdust. I would rotate my crops every year to keep the bugs a bay..
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
