Hello all,
Just this morning I went outside to check up on my CPs, but something was different on my Polish Dracula. I noticed these weird black things that kinda look like eggs on one of the traps. I don't notice them anywhere else, just that one trap. Pic below(brought inside for better focus):

What I think is, some sort of pest or fly that wasn't involved coincidentally flew on the outside of the trap, laid eggs and flew away unharmed. What do you guys think?
Thanks
Max

@evenwind they don't wipe off, but they come off with my fingernail. They look like little round eggs or feces, but who knows

@MaxVft, If it was my plant, I think I'd try rubbing them off with a q-tip wet with isopropyl.
