Whats on my driftwood?

I didn't really know where else to post this... they look like some kind of eggs to me...

These white bumps started appearing on my driftwood around a month ago. They never hatch into anything. Just sit there... Here's my stock in the tank.

4 Cory cats
5 black skirt tetras
5 neon tetras
4 fancy guppies
2 nerite snails

If your worried, you always just take it out and boil it. That will take care of it.

Just a suggestion. Sorry I can't help with an I.D.

After you boil the nerites will likely lay more, I just accepted it and left them there. They are mostly on the bottom of my driftwood so I don't see them much.
