Have you ordered the mantids before? I got 3 of them and have them hanging in jars atm. Local pet store sells wingless fruit flies that I’ll grab once they start hatching but wondering what do do with them all as can be 50-200 per pod. Depending on local weather at the time of hatching and being able to release them outside or needing larger housing inside.
I had some window screen I cut out for lids and ran wire twist ties along sticks and through screen to hold them up and put some old stems in there too with a paper towel and keeping it moist. Been about a week or so. Excited to watch the exit of the little buggers and hope the local temps are stable for release.
Any suggestions if you’ve gone through this process before jewels would be welcome
