CREEPY CRAWLIES: Moth eggs on my balcony

Last year on 23rd September, as I opened my balcony door I noticed something behind the outside handle. It appeared to be a moth with a clutch of tiny eggs.

A few weeks later, the moth disappeared. The eggs have remained there ever since. But last week, almost 8 months later, I noticed that the eggs had hatched and some very tiny, black, hairy caterpillars were crawling around outside my balcony door.

I am no expert when it comes to moths, so if anyone can tell me what type of moth this is I would be very grateful. One thing I did notice is that the moth had no wings.
