    Overview

    Model # 1014 Store SKU # 1000700318

    Praying Mantis are a "Great General Predator" in the garden. A fantastic educational tool for children. Can be hatched out in the garden or in a paper bag inside and then released in the garden or even in an aquarium or terrarium. They set up their own territory where they reside for the season, well camouflaged, but sometimes seen sunning on a leaf or in later summer flying to find a mate.

    1. Latin Name: Tenodera aridifolia sinensis, the green or brown praying mantis
    1. One egg case contains approximately 40 - 400 eggs that all hatch within about one hour. Babies disperse quickly throughout your garden leaving the egg case the same .
    1. Mantis feed on fruit flies, gnats, aphids, flies, mosquitoes, beetles, moths, caterpillars and even grasshoppers - pretty well anything they can get into their mouth.
    1. Hatching occurs in June when the weather is warm enough. Immediately dispersing and setting up their own territory
    1. One egg case covers Approximately 90 sq. m. (1000 sq. ft.)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Praying mantis egg cases - didn't work Nothing happened even with following directions. We had them in a butterfly enclosure so we wouldn't "miss" the praying mantis babies coming out and after all these weeks still nothing.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't release invasive insects into your yard! I bought this and hatched out the insects in an enclosure in my house, to keep as pets. Please don't put these in your garden - they are indiscriminate killers, and not native. If the winters warm enough, especially on the west coast, these chinese mantises could gain a foothold and damage an already stressed ecosystem. They make great pets though!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not enough babies I was a little disappointed in my egg case. The package claims hundreds of baby mantids, and we only had 3 hatch from our egg case.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dead on arrival Bought 2 this spring. Total dud. The instructions on the package are useless, but there are plenty of guides online. "40-400 manti per egg cluster" I got ZERO. They were either fake or dead.

    I ordered an egg case the beginning of May (May 8th I believe), I have it indoors in a deep container with air holes and suspended using the bag it came in. I also mist it once aver 2-3 days. Did I mess something up and it should have hatched by now?

    Asked by: MrReady
    They can take a while before they hatch so just be patient. I had one in a small aquarium for about a month before it hatched. I never misted it at all. I woke up one morning and had over 100 Praying Mantis in the aquarium.
