Neon yellow eggs in my zucchini and nasturtiums

Neon yellow eggs in my zucchini and nasturtiums

Post  Windmere on 4/12/2013, 2:29 pm

Hello all,

Today I was out tending to my seedlings and made a disturbing discovery. At the base of the stems of my zucchini were these bright yellow, almost neon yellow, eggs. They freaked my out, so I immediately removed them.

Then, I noticed some of the same eggs in the hanging planter I am using for our nasturtium seedlings. (I plan on letting them hang from the planter is a nice cascade.)

Well, I did a google image search using "neon yellow insect eggs" as my query. I came up with this:

http://www.easttennesseewildflowers.com/gallery/index.php/Beetles_Bugs/Copy_of_Insect_eggs_001

These eggs look very similar to the ones I found today. Now I feel awful. I can't be certain that they were lady bug eggs, but if they were, that would have been really nice.

Does anyone else have any experience with bright yellow insect eggs? I am wondering if they could have been something bad after all...

Thanks all! Smile

Hey there FamilyGardening,

Thanks so much for responding to my post. You know what? Long after I had done away with the eggs... I thought, "Hmmm... I really should have photographed those."

Doh!! If this happens again, I will remember to do that! I posted this time because I wasn't sure if this was a pretty unique colored egg that could easily be associated with a specific insect.

Thanks again for posting a response.

Smile
