These eggs were laid on a dead piece of grass, which was stuck in a honeysuckle vine. The eggs are at the end of the string like structure attached to the grass. The eggs are translucent, but are white when light is shined on it. This is most likely the eggs of some species of green lacewing, which are very common around here.
In my garden, Fort Worth, Texas. (Suburban habitat)
Eggs are deposited at night, singly or in small groups; one female produces some 100–200 eggs. Eggs are placed on plants, usually where aphids are present nearby in numbers. Each egg is hung on a slender stalk about 1 cm long, usually on the underside of a leaf.
