    Good evening,

    I just signed a lease on a new apartment, and there was an old night stand left behind by the previous tenant. While I was looking over it, I found this stuff. I'm terrified.

    Should I continue to be terrified?

    Thanks as always!

    Hi,

    Might be spider or moth eggs.

    I would wait for Lou if you are curious but compare them to my egg pics and you see the colour and transparency is wrong.

    Hi David,

    I believe you that they aren't BB eggs!

    Considering the number of these things on the stand though, I would like to know what they are, so I'm bumping this topic to hopefully get Lou's opinion.

    Thanks again!!

    Spider eggs are spherical. Moth eggs would be spherical. Dead and dried ones would be wrinkled, depressed, but spherical. These look more solid, too.
    Where do you live? I have a feeling these are not eggs at all.

    Hello Lou,

    Thank you very much for your response!

    I live in Ohio.

    I Googled insect eggs in general last night, and honestly, none of the eggs I saw look anything like what I found on the stand.

    Is there an even more sinister possibility? Goodness, I hope not! I really like this apartment!

    Yes, its a powerful demon called anxiety.

    It rears its head up and makes people think the worst.

    As their are not bed bugs and also don't appear fresh, I would file them as odd and historic. Clean them up and get on with you day. Should you see more later or hear them starting to scheme from the dark corner of the room call the MiB (men in black). I am sure they will affirm its nothing to "see here" and its time to move on.
