Pearls or Stink Bug Eggs?
You can tell that these eggs are ready to hatch because the baby stink bugs, called nymphs, are clearly visible. The two red dots in each egg are the fully developed compound eyes of the nymph. Each egg is 0.7 mm in diameter—about the width of a pencil lead. Upon hatching, the nymph will have the form of a tiny adult, and then shed its cuticle five times to become an adult in a about a month.
