Pod-shaped Organisms Could be Goldenrod Gall Fly Larva or Plant Seeds

“What could these be from?” asks Dustry in her submission regarding two, brown, pod-shaped objects, as well as some pus-like, white substance on some wooden baseboards. She does not give us any more context, which makes this identification difficult, as we do not recognize the organisms purely by their appearance. With that said, our sleuthing tells us that the brown objects could be goldenrod gall fly larvae, or seeds from the rough barnyard grass. The white substance looks to us like it could be a sac of eggs, or perhaps a secretion of some kind. We will say right off the bat that we cannot be sure what the white substance is, but that we doubt it is linked to the brown objects.
