I took a photo last night of the same egg clusters on the glass door on my sheltered porch in 45F rain under a yellow buglight that reflects in the photo along with my camera. I looked at them with a hand lens also. I first noticed the eggs on Nov 16, 3 weeks ago. You can see that the eggs are not pure white anymore but they are not empty either. I also rephotographed the same egg cluster as the other, on a clapboard at the same height, about my eye level. These are still white, although the bug light makes them look golden.
Are they viable? When will they hatch? What can I do to ensure that I see who comes out? Is it a good idea to detach and take them indoors? Please help!
