Identifying Insect Eggs?

June 3, 2020

Identifying Insect Eggs Found on Wood Deck?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.

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.

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 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.

Yikes! Looks like larvae. Get rid of it:

Step 1
Pour boiling water on them, gather the waste, and dispose of them far from your house

Step 2
Flush the drain with bleach and boiling water

Step 3
Deep clean your shower

Step 4
If you see any full grown after these steps, they can be eliminated with any commercial insect-killing spray.

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.Is This a Brown Banded Roach Egg Case? - egg case next to a ruler

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.

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.
