Easter Egg Hunt

Mar 26, 2018

Easter often brings to mind colorful eggs hiding in the landscape for children to find. At UC IPM, we thought you'd want to know about eggs already hiding in your yard: insect and spider eggs!

Many insects and spiders have strangely shaped and colorful eggs that you may have never noticed. Below are some photos of these interesting eggs and our own version of a spring time egg hunt.

We challenge you to guess which adult insect or spider belongs to the following eggs and egg cases. Some are beneficials, while others might be pests. Extra “points” awarded for being able to know the difference! Answers will be posted on Tuesday afternoon. Good luck!
