Virtual Easter Egg Hunt

For the last two years, UC IPM has shared an Easter egg photo quiz with insect and spider eggs and egg cases. In case you want to play again, this post is from our 2018 egg hunt and this post is our 2019 egg hunt.

This year, with everyone sheltering-in-place, we want you to hunt for insect eggs and share photos with UC IPM! As you are planting seeds, weeding, watering the plants, or out in nature, keep an eye out for eggs hiding in plain sight.

Here's how to participate:

  • Take photos of the insect eggs and egg cases you find. Be sure the photos are in focus.
  • Share the photos on Twitter, Facebook and/or Instagram. Tag @ucipmurban and use the hashtag #UCIPMegghunt so we can see them.
  • We'll share what you find on our pages and try to help identify what type of eggs we see.

UC IPM's virtual Easter egg hunt will run through the end of April. We hope you'll join the fun!
