Your letter to the bugman: Found this in the back yard. Looks like there maybe eggs on its back. Is it going to mess up my garden?

Your “stickbug” is an Inchworm or Spanworm, the caterpillar of a moth in the family Geometridae, and they are excellent twig mimics. What you have mistaken for eggs are actually the pupae of parasitoid Chalcid Wasps. Here is a similarly parasitized Inchworm on BugGuide and here is an image of the Chalcid Wasp that emerged, also on BugGuide.
