Identifying Insect Eggs

Found these eggs on a piece of sleeper wood lying in the yard. Anyone know what they might be? When rubbing one a turquoise colour liquid came out. The eggs are copper metallic in colour.

Get rid of all wood lying in the yard. The egg can be one of many insects. Termites and powderpost beetles do a lot of damage.

They look like either squash bug eggs or stink bug eggs.

Best to scrape them off into a bucket with hot water and a little dish soap to kill them and then dispose of the water away from the house.

Stink bugs are a basically harmless nuisance where I am but squash bugs can kill plants in your garden.
