What was laid on my Ascelepias Incarnata (Swamp Milkweed)?
Hello, I noticed a few of these yellow eggs on my milkweed a few days ago and now I've got an infestation of them all over many of the stems and seed pods. After looking at them with a magnifier, I can see they have 8 tiny black legs. Is this a beneficial insect or pest? Any suggestions on what I should do? Thanks, Carol Tompkins
