Identifying Insect Eggs?

Yesterday I saw about 30 of these on the railing of my wood deck. At first I thought they were ants carrying crumbs, but after looking closer I only see a small black dot on the bottom. They seemed to be wiggling some. Today I found even more on the back deck and some on my wood front railing. I am not sure what they are or where they came from!

These are called Hypoaspis Mites- Wood Mites. They are not dangerous to people, but they love damp, moist, often older wood. Here is some history- www.hunker.com/.../how-to-get-rid-of-wood-mites

I ended up emailing an entomologist that was listed and he thinks they are small bagworms. That makes sense because after doing some research it looks like the neighbors behind us have bagworms in their tree. Thanks for all your help!

These are wood mites and they love to live on damp wood. If you've had a lot of rain lately and the wood is or stays damp you can attract these bugs and they are a pain.

They do not hurt the wood but they are hard to get rid of and I would suggest that you do this because when they hatch you'll have tons of mites all over your home and yard and then it is a mess to get rid of them.

Can you please tell me what type of insect eggs these are? I found them in the corners of my office kitchen. They are behind boxes and cardboard. I also found them in-between the broom bristles and along the edge of the wall. There are quite a few of them.
If you could please provide me some tips on how to avoid getting these eggs or killing off the main insect would be helpful.

These are not eggs from any insect. This is wood from a termite eating your home.

You need to get it sprayed right away in order to save the wood in your home.

They are either moths or stink bugs. Can't get a good look up close--if they are fancy with spiky things they are stink bugs, smoother, something in the moth family.

If you have a pressure washer, I would remove them.

It sounds like you could be dealing with stinkbugs, aphids, or tomato hornworms. All these seem to leave yellowish egg clusters on the undersides of leaves.

Constant vigilance and picking the eggs off is one solution.

Yes, they are tomato worms. I have to go through the garden every couple of days & pick them off. You have to squish them, too, so I wear garden gloves.

These are larva eggs either from a moth or spider that has gotten in your camper. My bet is a moth that has laid the eggs in your camper.

Good picture. Butterfly eggs can be interesting to watch over a period of time. Please leave them alone if at all possible.

This was fascinating to me as I live in Florida and have only seen small patches of eggs before.
Here are pictures of butterfly eggs and doing research some time back I found out they are in different colors according to the species.

These actually could be snake eggs from what I can read about them. A snake egg is an oblong shape and has a soft leathery texture to them. If the eggs are like this then I would say they are snake eggs. Do you happen to have snakes in your area and what kind are hey?

They look like moth eggs. If the carpet is wool, holes will confirm. Vacuum them up, then toss the bag. That should eliminate the issue.
