I ordered some Chinese praying mantis egg cases from “We Got The Bug” they are a company located in Pennsylvania. So far I am very impressed, I ordered the oothecas on Sunday night and I had them on Wednesday. That was very quick and the box had a lot of great personal touches. There were several insect stickers on the box which I enjoyed.
Package Arrives from “We Got The Bugs”
I ordered 15 egg cases because last year my neighbors and friends were so amazed and impressed by the mantids that they begged me to get them some this year. The true test is if these are fertile. That we won’t know until later, but they sure look large and healthy. They also included instructions, a mesh hatching bag, and zip ties to attach your egg case to a bush.
I will be reaching out to the owner today to inquire about what other insects or species of praying mantises they other. I will also write an update on my hatching success rate. Thanks for reading and sign up to my newsletter.
