As your praying mantises grow, you'll need larger food items. Try the items on this page for mantises that have outgrown what you're currently feeding them.

Silkworms
Silkworms are super-duper nutritious and make an ideal food for your praying mantis. These are "Small/Medium" Silkworms and are approximately 1/2 to 1 inch. They are soft-bodied, nutritious, grub-like caterpillars that your mantis friends can easily capture & devour. Each order includes enough mulberry food to feed your silkworms for a week or two and full instructions.

Silkworm Food
Silkworms only eat the leaves of the mulberry tree or our prepared silkworm food, which is made from mulberry leaf powder and comes to you in a paste form. Store the food in the fridge and grate it over the silkworms when it's time to feed them. They should be fed at least once a day. Instructions included.

Please note- Our silkworms offered above come with enough silkworm food to last a week or so. If you will be keeping your silkworms longer than that or you want to grow them to a larger size, you'll need more silkworm food.

Praying Mantis Egg Case
THAT'S NO MISTAKE- this is not in the wrong section. Believe it or not, the egg case makes a superb food for your juvenile and adult praying mantises, and you get lots of bang for the buck. Just put the egg case in your enclosure and it will hatch in a few weeks, providing hundreds of little meals for your larger praying mantis(es). If the newly hatched nymphs are a bit too small for your adult mantis, just let them grow for a week or two. Praying mantises can be naturally cannibalistic anyway since they will eat pretty much anything they can overpower.
