Stink Bug Eggs (Pentatomidae) Grrr, this picture stinks! But, I am sharing it anyway because the eggs were so pretty -- especially the blue ones! I&#039;m assuming the dark ones were diseased/parasitized.<br />

Stink bug eggs are barrel-shaped and are laid in clusters, standing upright, on vegetation. The circular lid at the top has a ring of spines along the edge. <br />

  2. Good call to post it Christine! Surely these are parasitized, but that just makes them more interesting ;o) Posted 3 months ago
    1. Thanks Arp! Definitely interesting...I am trying to make it a point to remember to collect some the next time I find them! I want to see who emerges! Posted 3 months ago
