Does anyone know what these will be?
Friend or For?
They are on the tiniest new growth lettuce leaf. They are about a half millimeter in diameter. Round vs. oval.

I haven't a clue, but I love your pretty lettuce, and hope someone knows which insect laid those eggs.

I don't have experience with eggs, but make sure the jar has air circulation.

Do you still have your eggs in a jar? Not sure but they could be stink bug eggs.

@wildflowers
Christine-
I had to go out of town for the grandchildren so I never even gathered them into a jar. When I returned they were nowhere to be seen. And the lettuce is still there nodding So I guess I will have to wait till I see them again.

All is well then, Toni. Smiling

I found some eggs today, I think they're leaf footed stink bug eggs.

WOW! I've never seen that pattern before. Are those dark in color?

Somehow I just wandered on this thread so let me answer your question @Toni. Hilarious!

Yes, those eggs are dark but more like a copper color in real life. Looking at them again I'm pretty sure they are squash bug eggs.
