Hatched our other indoors and we’re able to place the young mantises where they would thrive in our gardens.
The product seemed fine. I saw a nymph yesterday -- July 17, 2022-- that might be a generation removed from one of the oothecae I introduced into my garden last year. Can't really tell, but here's hoping.
Have gotten these a few times now and am always delighted to see many praying mantises in my garden
I was always fascinated by praying mantises, they seem like such intelligent insects. Now I have a few of my own from USMantis and I've got all the gear to get me started, so I'm now growing my first fruit fly culture, and the first batch of baby mantises just hatched this morning. They are really fun to watch, and even my family caught on to looking at flies or other bugs we run across in the house as not a nuisance but a potential food source for our new pets :)
