It's official! They're here!

These squash bug eggs were oddly pale - usually they're a DARK brick red. I'm guessing they were freshly laid. They DID squish super easy. Wasn't the brightest of bugs since she laid them on TOP of the leaf...they're typically laid on the underside. Oh, and I've been finding a LOT more of these clusters of eggs lately, so now my poor squash plants are looking all ripped up because I tear off the section of leaf with the eggs and either tromp on it, or bring it inside and send it down the disposal.

These guys aren't my friends either:

I've massacred many of both of those nasties this season so far.

One had the gall to land on my leg!
