What Are These Insect Eggs?

Hi, I've come across this last night in my outhouse which is attached to the back of my house just off a field. I rarely use this room apart from an extra freezer and kids bikes, etc. so I haven't got a clue how long it's been there. I did spot a spider close to the web, but it was nowhere near the black clusters and this morning, it's gone.


Could someone please help me with this so I know if it's just spider eggs, which I'm absolutely terrified of, or if something else so I can get it removed in the correct way. Please excuse the picture, my phone isn't brilliant and I was trying to stay as far away from it as I could. Thank you in advance.

Your picture is very blurry and it is really hard to see this. There not spider eggs so don't worry about this. Normally spider eggs are in an egg sack. These look like moth eggs to me. They are not harmful at all but they do look awful. You can clean this with some water and scrape them off the wall area. When you clean them I would put them in a sealed plastic bag and throw them in the trash.

It is difficult to tell from this picture but I would say to spray them with some regular bug spray (if you have it) or some 1/1 water bleach (as it looks like you might have some mold starting lower on the wall(?) or some white vinegar and wait an hour or so before going back to check the site.
Take a small trash can or container and then use some sort of scraper - anything that has a handle -(even a kitchen spatula) - and scrap the bugs/eggs into the container. Empty this into a plastic bag, close it tightly and put in outside trash/garbage container.

You probably should check the rest of this shed/house just in case there are others located in another area.
It would be a good idea to check this area every 2-3 weeks for any kind of infestation and if you see mold you should try to remove it with bleach water.

The picture is much too blurry to be sure. From what I can see, it looks like mold, not eggs. We had a problem like this on our shed wall (it was on the wood frame around the plexiglass window). We had to take a scraper to it and then when we got the crust of it off, we treated it with a vinegar bath. It still comes back sometimes, but not like that first time.

This could be insect droppings, or even mold. Cleaning with a little bleach and water will clear those areas . This will also keep from reoccurring and sanitize the area . -
