We offer the egg case of both the Chinese (Tenodera sinensis) & Carolina (Stagmomantis carolina) mantis.
The Carolina praying mantis reaches 2 - 2.5 inches when full grown and ranges in color from dusty gray to brown and green. The Carolina is native to the U.S. The Chinese mantis will reach 3-5 inches when fully grown and ranges in color from green to light brown. It has naturalized in this country, living here since the 1800s
We recommend either hanging the egg case in a shady area of your garden among the plant foliage OR keeping the egg case in one of our praying mantis enclosures and raising them as pets.
It is important that you have food on hand when the egg case hatches (unless releasing them into your garden). We recommend the melanogaster wingless fruit flies, which you'll find HERE.
