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/
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.

I found tons of those eggs in the soil and around the root system of a house plant I was transplanting. What are they?
I woke up this morning and found this black mass of I don't know what on my bathroom wall, but it may be eggs of some kind of insect. Does anyone have any ideas?
Yikes! Looks like larvae. Get rid of it:
Pour boiling water on them, gather the waste, and dispose of them far from your house
Flush the drain with bleach and boiling water
Deep clean your shower
If you see any full grown after these steps, they can be eliminated with any commercial insect-killing spray.
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.
To identify an egg is not that easy. However, there is a way to find out what the insect egg is.
Take the eggs that you have gathered and put them in a plastic bag.
Go to a pet exterminator company and show them the eggs.
They will help you identify the eggs and the insect.
Find out if you can take care of this at home on your own.
You might need a professional to come in to spray for the insect and the eggs.
These are called - Ampelomyia Viticola - larvae that loves and attacks ,fruit vines like grapes, berries, and muscadine. Here is more info on these pest- en.wikipedia.org/
I came home to my Florida wonder house and found this on the floor not near anything else. Any ideas?
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.
This looks like Frass from termites...the termites chew the wood and leave behind this type of crumbly mess of sawdust and termite excrement. You should get an exterminator ASAP !!!! Good luck.
Can anyone confirm if this is a brown banded roach egg case? It was at my sister's on the sill by her AC unit that is rarely used. It's just under 1/8th of an inch and as you can see by the photo appears to look identical to photos of those egg cases online, albeit a bit smaller.
If it is not one can you hazard a guess what it may be?
Thank you all for your help!
It sure looks like it. We live by the river and at certain times when it rains we seem to get roaches in our home. Not all the time. But when they are here I do find these casing around the house and most of them are already broken or hatched. This one sort of looks like it has not hatched as of yet.
It does look like a roach egg and these nasty bugs multiply fast.
See which species your egg looks like as well as several suggestions on how to kill these quickly.

I found these small purple eggs on my clothes peg. Does anyone know what insect laid these eggs, should I get rid of them or are they harmless? Would be grateful for any help.
What kind of eggs would these be? They are on a tree. All I can find is maybe lady bugs? Can you help?
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 eggs were found on the pantry wall in my camper. Anybody know what they are and if I should be worried?
I believe your picture is of a Triangulate Cobweb Spider Egg Sac. These are common spiders; more info at spideridentifications.com/
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.
Anyone know what these are or what insect/pest/critter it belongs to? I find them in the door cracks and on the floor below.I live in Florida and they are sand like in appearance. Thank you guys!!
