the tomato hormworm and braconid wasps- those are cocoons on the hormworm's back, not eggs. The egg is inserted under the skin, the larvae feeds on the insides and pierces the skin to pupate - in a cocoon- attached to the outside of the hornworm. They certainly look egg-shaped/tic tac, but these are cocoons AND proof that the hornworm is already a goner. Their insides were eaten by braconid wasp larva inside, so that hornworm is already a goner when you see the cocoons outside the hornworm's body/on its back. And super neat too to see the emergence of wasps from those cocoons, they chew their way out, perfect little 'lids' fold back and they emerge. A rare incidence too of a parasitic relationship that actually results in the death of the host. Nature, AMAZING!

To get rid of voles, try milky spore. It kills the grubs that the voles eat.
