The next generation (of bugs)

September 27, 2007

I was taking apart an old bicycle wheel and found a neat row of insect eggs on one of the spokes:

I guess a stainless steel spoke is as good as a twig.  Anyone know what kind of insect lays eggs like this?

    Scroll down past the first photos of spiders to katydid eggs.  Looks like a close match.

    Thanks!  It does seem to be a match.  And then a Google Image search of “katydid eggs” turned up many more like it.  I think it’s safe to say that is what these are. 

    I think I’ll put ‘em in a jar and see if I can photo them as they hatch.

    Those are very small alien space ships.  Your life is in danger. Run!
