Praying Mantis Ootheca (Egg Case)

Praying Mantis Ootheca

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.

Both species live in a large part of the country and are widely used for garden pest control. Each case (ootheca) hatches over 100 specimens each! Mantises will hatch after 3-8 weeks of warm weather. 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. Please see our FAQ PAGE for lots of information.

It is important that you have food on hand when the egg case hatches (unless releasing them into your garden). Here at The Praying Mantis Shop, we stock a full line of living praying mantis food, from food for newborns to food for mature adults. Once you've ordered your egg case, you'll find the food on the menu to the left
