Praying Mantis Nursery

About three weeks ago I put a Praying Mantis egg case in the Death Valley Shack and it hatched the other day. The tag states that there will be 100 to 200 babies, They were not kidding, it took me about a hour and a half to get them spread out through the neighborhood plus here at Beech Street. I went to everybody's door and ask if they would like some Praying Mantis babies. No one said no..........

Quarter inch in size

Added a couple to the Death Valley Shack and I saw one this morning. It was standing watch on a small barrel cactus. Nothings better than organic bug control.


  1. Damn I wish I lived closer to you!

  2. That is crazy!!!!! did you buy that egg case!?!?!
