Ordering praying mantises online is a simple way to introduce beneficial insect predators to your organic garden. I love my mantises just for their ability to control stink bugs, if nothing else.
This video tells you where you can buy the eggs (or oothecae) and what to do with them once they arrive. The eggs need a certain amount of warmth for a sustained amount of time before the young mantis nymphs will emerge.
Did you know that are many types of mantises? I'll show you what the Carolina Mantis eggs look like when compared to Chinese Mantis eggs cases. The adults are different sizes too. I'll tell you why I prefer the Carolina variety.
