GAHH! Mite and yellow eggs
Basking Ridge, Somerset County, New Jersey, USA

Size: Entire image about 1 cm
THIS is what makes me mad. I was taking a picture of the dead fungus gnat under the garbage can and never noticed that there was a cool looking mite right next to it, and that yellow piece of yellow "fertilizer" turned out to be a cluster of eggs. (Taking out the garabage takes an hour because of the bugs under the cans, ex: springtails, mites, flies, spiders, ect)
Sorry about the dead bug.
