Pentatomidae, eggs - Euschistus

Pentatomidae, eggs - Euschistus
100 Acre Wood, Winneshiek County, Iowa, USA
June 12, 2018
Size: 1+ mm
June 4, 2018: collected eggs on the underside of an aster leaf
June 14, 2018: (o/b) nymphs emerged, all very still, thought they were dead but they weren't. Toured the yard picking this and that: dandelions, red clover, asters, goldenrod, dock and others. Dandelions & clover were preferred (But with most of them dying, those plants may have been survival food.)
June 17, 2018: one nymph still hanging with the eggs, the others = some dead, some bigger
June 26, 2018: only 3 still alive and they are all small
July 10, 2018: dandelions are full of thrips
August 9, 2018: dumped everything out of jar (after being away) to clean and freshen, thought they were all dead, stiff, but one was in a stand-up position, nudged it, it ran, cool, all 3 alive
August 24, 2018: fresh molt to adult (but could only find 1 nymph, not even a dead 3rd)
August 26, 2018: photographed the adult, released it and the 1 nymph, it's been a long confinement

Batch rearing, 14 eggs, 14 nymphs, down to just two. I dare say nature might have been kinder.
