Hi!
I saw this on my lavender this morning. It appears to be eggs.
Has anybody ever seen this? And, perhaps, can give some insight?
Thank you!

Most likely bug eggs. I'm not sure what kind, good or bad ?
Id brush them off into a jar, to see what hatches out.
Only bug that bothers lavender hear is occasionally aphids.
Possibly butterfly eggs ? Being in such a straight line.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Thank you, Phillip!
I have not seen butterflies here before, and after (luckily) ruling out locusts, I was able to compare them to some images of moth eggs I found online.
After visiting the site Moths Count, I am tempted to leave them and see what happens.
I am fairly certain it will be harmless.
I appreciate your feedback! :)

You are berry much welcome 😁.
I've never saw bugs that are so meticulous that lay eggs in such a staight line, and must of been a FAT moth, to lay all those eggs. Send some pics of worms, please ! 😎😎😎
