Need help identifying this on my citrus tree.
« on: February 14, 2023, 04:04:00 PM »
Found about ten of them this am. They are some kind of pod or egg, and they were in a very sticky substance. These I found this afternoon. They are the same thing, just dried out a little.

Here's some more pics. They look like some kind of larvae, individual and some in clumps. Some look hatched, but can't tell what they are, or if they're doing damage. I WILL BE SPRAYING.

They look like seeds! The first one even looks like a berry of some kind. I'm struggling to have my brain see them as anything else tbh, but I'm sure they are not ACTUALLY seeds. Hopefully someone can help answer it for you.

Thanks, I agree they look like seeds, and probably from birds. Much appreciated.
