They look like if they're some stink bug's species (Pentatomidae) double row eggs...

Great find! They look like red pearls. I'm curious what they are. Looking forward to your spot when they hatch!

Oh ho martini... so these are eggs of the bad guys? Not sure how you can tell they look hungry, but I'll take your word for it.
As they are only on 1 plant, and I have the plants growing separately up the borgainvillea, I might just watch them and see what hatches. I guess it means visiting the plant 2 or 3 times a day!

I hope you are going to watch these Pam. They look hungry and I bet they're going to suck the juices out of your bean plants. (hemipteran?)
