Q.Bug Eggs, Identification?

Zone SW Michigan, 49057 zone 5 | artmaker added on September 2, 2020 | Answered

Hi, I tried posting before but did not have a photo. DO now, so will retry. Found eggs under a milkweed leaf. I left this weed for monarchs only something else filled up an upper most leaf. Odd thing is these eggs will jiggle like jumping beans. Now today I shot a photo and only after I got it up on the big computer screen, SOMETHING is hatching. Really teeny somethings. SO here comes a photo. Thanks.

Uh-oh. Those are aphids. You will need to get a control on that before it gets worse.

Oh my, here I thought ladybugs. NOT. Ok, just on a weed, in a bad place anyway. I have more milkweed in another spot for the butterflies, this one can go.

Thank you SO much. This plant happens to be right next to a raised veggie bed. I'll go dispatch that now.
