I took this photo and when I looked more closely I discovered there were eggs in the picture. I don’t know if the eggs are from the beetle or the other bugs that were nearby. I believe this to be a white oak borer.
(I just sent another image and should have mentioned that I don’t think the giant beetle in the photo is a hercules beetle. I hope you have time to take a look at it.)
thanks again

White Oak Borer

Dear Grace,
Thanks for sending in your image of a White Oak Borer.  We do not believe the eggs belong to the Borer.  We believe the eggs are Tiger Moth Eggs.

    Because of the number and arrange, most likely stink bug eggs to me.
