Mysterious eggs 4 days from now, I saw these eggs in my mom&#039;s kitchen garden and I searched for the species. Learnt from few entemology friends they belong to bugs of sub-family Pentatomidae which has 900+ genus and 4700+ species so I stopped my search then and there and decided to wait for them to hatch.<br />

Look at the size of juveniles and compare it with the current size and all this in just 5 days.<br />
