Edit: Added closeups

  • Could you manage to post a bigger close up picture? – Ariser Oct 13 '19 at 6:56
  • Do they happen to look like butterfly or moth eggs? There are a wide variety of appearances for them. They're not always clustered, either. Those white butterflies we have just deposit a single egg at a time and fly off. Those eggs look a lot like this: entomologytoday.org/imported-cabbageworm-egg – Brōtsyorfuzthrāx Oct 14 '19 at 21:57
  • How do you remove these then? By brushing them off? I have added closeups – Aksh Oct 16 '19 at 7:55
  • These look like round grains of salt. – Aksh Oct 16 '19 at 7:55
  • They definitely look like eggs, but not cabbage worm eggs. – Brōtsyorfuzthrāx Mar 19 '20 at 3:29
