And the answer is…..

Green lacewing eggs!  I know you all were just on the edge of your seats waiting to hear about the mystery insect eggs!

These beneficial predatory insect larvae feed on soft bodied pests in the garden such as aphids, white flies, and others.  We are very happy to welcome them into the UVa Community Garden!  More information about these insects can be found here.
