    I know they are around as I found a tiny one on my plants awhile back. So far I haven't seen any of the adults, but i'll keep watching. I love praying mantis...they are one of my favorite bugs. Thank You for sharing...

    I always like to see a praying mantis. As a third grader we raised a bunch of them in our classroom. When they were about an inch or so long we released them outside.

    cheers,

    I always like to see praying mantis and lady bugs in my orchids. They both eat the bugs that eat orchids. So as long as they keep doing that, we'll remain friends.

    I have one out in the greenhouse right now. I don't think he/she likes having me around, but I do like having them make themselves at home out there. I wish I knew how to encourage their friends and relations.......................AL
