does this look familiar to anyone?

Post  Miss Erica on 5/27/2012, 7:13 am

I have found this on the top of many of my cucumber leaves in the last few days... does anyone recognize them? Wondering if it is eggs of some bug or just bug poop. Something is DEF chomping on my plants and damaging them - but I don't know what......

From what I have noticed in the past, insects generally like to lay eggs in an orderly fashion in sheltered places like the underside of a leaf. I think this is insect poo.

is it realistic to get THAT much poo in a single night? relatively speaking - that is a lot of poo.... there are rather large grasshoppers around... I have a feeling they might be responsible for some of the damage... they are too big to NOT be a contributing faction, IMO...

Re: the second picture- that looks more like eggs to me. But, (as camprn already noted) I'm used to seeing eggs on the underside of the leaves, not the top. I would be very tempted to take that leaf off, and stick it in a jar; see what happens.
As for the top picture, yeah, I'll go with bug poop--not that I have any knowledge basis for this--and see if it washes off. Ick.
