Your letter to the bugman:  Hello! I was going down the house to get some water when I noticed this creature on our window. I was fascinated by the way it was orderly laying its eggs. I’d love to know what kind of insect it is, especially if it’s harmless or not (because laying that much eggs isn’t a good omen by any means).

True Bug laying Eggs

Dear Cockroach lookalike fearing girl,
A species identification will be difficult for us without a dorsal view of this egg laying True Bug in the suborder Heteroptera.  We believe this might be a Leaf Footed Bug in the family Coreidae based on the similarity of these Squash Bug eggs pictured on Getty Images and the eggs in your image.
