Praying Mantises eat a wide variety of garden pests. In their younger stages they eat aphids, thrips, flies and maggots, small caterpillars, leafhoppers, white grubs and other soft-bodied insects. Mature Mantis feed on larger caterpillars, earwigs, chinch bugs, sow bugs, beetles, grasshoppers and other large insects. We carry a tub with two egg cases ready to hatch when the weather warms for $8.99. Seasonal, call for availability.
