Greetings bug people. We have something that lays eggs on our screens every summer. Can you help identify?
Signature: Thank you!
Do you keep a light on at night near this screen? These look like Moth Eggs, and if you look carefully in the lower left corner, there is a tiny, recently hatched caterpillar.We will attempt to identify the eggs, but we are guessing a member of the family Saturniidae or the subfamily Arctiinae. Both possibilities we mentioned are groups with many large and colorful species, and we would imagine that if you find the eggs every summer, you must also have seen the adult moths before as well.
