Red eggs hatched into red bugs

These are the red eggs from this post. They hatched today, into some kind of heteroptera.




They are super-tiny, as you can see by my gargantuan index finger next to one of the hatchlings.



Here is another shot of my finger (Looks almost like a toe, doesn't it? It isn't, though.) next to the little dandelion bud. You can almost make out the teeny eggs and bugs up near the top.

I don't know exactly what kind of bugs they are, but I'm not going to try to raise these things. They're just too small. I have lots of dandelion weeds in my yard, so I draped the little drooping bud over a live growing one, and I carefully transferred the one loose bug onto the weed, too.
