    I'm guessing these are the males farther up on another leaf.

    Those eggs are really big. How do they even fit inside the bugs?

    Looks like they're setting up a billiard table! Or racking bowling pins.

    I know, the two triangles. I wonder how they get that. Sorry the picture isn't that sharp. It was the best I could get since it's so small. I looked before nightfall and the bugs have all left, but the eggs remain.

    If you like those, then you might like harlequin bug eggs too.

    Wrestlervic, I hope you destroy those eggs as that beetle is a non-native invader that is really causing huge damage in agriculture.

    Quite the dilemma, and yes, I've seen some leaf damage on the plant as the adults must have had at it. I guess I'll remove the leaf tomorrow. icon_cry.gif

    It's too late. The stinkbugs are dug in. We have them in our house from time to time year round, and in the garden. They really attack when the weather gets cool. I hate them.
