Revenge of the Mantids
Check out my story about praying mantids on San Juan Island! They’ve been a victim of hyper-sensationalism. Seriously. Read my article before you squish one.
Let me know if you have questions about these or other insects you come across! I’m always interested and do my best to answer emails. Thanks!
Great article! I didn’t realize so many baby praying mantis died in the wild. We buy eggs from the garden center and release them as soon as they hatch! Next year, we will have to raise them up in tanks.
