Eggs on Leaves
Name: Kristin B.
I have seen large clusters of eggs on the leaves of some
of the trees in my yard. These eggs look as though they are "glued" to
the leaf, and all around the surrrounding leaves have been eaten with
many holes in them. They only seem to be on certain trees, although
leaves on some of my flowering plants have also been targeted.
I looked at the site for gypsy moths, and these eggs don't match the
description at all. Which insect are these eggs a product of, and are
they similar in destroying the leaves? This is the first encounter I've
ever had with whatever it is! Any help on what these insects are and how
to control this problem would be greatly appreciated!!!
The following might help, but looks like you would need to refer this to
your local agricultural extension service for more specific info.
