Nice pic! and glad to know what the eggs looks like. These are quite common here in Southern Saskatchewan.

That would be quite a feat - to lay 10 eggs
each as big as you are! Actually this is not a mite - it has only six legs. Rather it is a bug - Heteroptera - and it has probably just hatched from one of the eggs in the picture. Nice find!
