I have these pea-sized pinkish orange eggs in my flower bed. I don't think these are good. Its some kind of insect and there is about 30-40 of them in a pile. Could it be Scorpions?

If so how do I get rid of them?

I don't know what they are, but with that small amt. I would just use a trowel, to pick them up and discard.

Those might be the eggs of a gecko or other lizard. I found some in my garden last year and it turned out that's what they were. I'm glad I didn't destroy them as now I have a healthy population that keeps my bug problems at bay completely naturally! See if you can find someone to look them over and tell you. If they have a leathery outer shell that may well be what you have there. Hope this helps.

I'm just curious as to whether you kept the eggs or not. I'm interested to find out what they are. If you're nervous about it, put them in a secured "cage" (fix one out of window screen and wood) and watch them hatch. Sounds exciting to me. Let us know!

I have the same in the garden, But I think they maybe a fungus. Mine are almost a coral color but after a few sprinkles of cornmeal they turn brown and go away.
