Anon advises on 'Eggs' found on tomato hornworm

They're actually larvae of the good guys, the Brachnoid wasp

Anon writes:
The "eggs" were actually the larvae of the Brachonid wasp, a tiny, *non-stinging* natural predator of the hornworm (colloquially known as the tomato worm). See.

From the above link: "These attacked [i.e., larvae-carrying] hornworms will have little effect on your plants, so leave them and let the wasps carry out their life cycle." - Anon
