Praying Mantis

Praying Mantis are amazing little predators, and perfect for backyard pest control or as an indoor observation and educational tool. You will receive your Mantis as an egg case - which contain anywhere from 50 to 400 eggs! As tiny babies, they are voracious and will consume quite a bit - which is why we recommend starting a colony of wingless fruit flies to supply your little critters with enough to eat. Adults are large (up to 10 cm), and green or brownish with papery wings. This species is approved by Agriculture Canada for release, so when they are big enough you can let them go into your garden, where they will roam around and take care of all those pesky garden bugs you don't want.

 Please be advised that our mantis ootheca are subject to seasonal availability. These become ready for shipping in mid April, and are usually sold out by May. Ootheca are not available during the winter time. If you are interested in having Mantis for your home, classroom, or garden, it is advisable to place your order in advance to ensure availability.
