Frequently Asked Questions
Living Praying Mantises|
This is the Chinese mantis (Tenodera sinensis). It will reach 3-5 inches when fully grown and
ranges in color from green to light brown, depending of the time of its last molt (skin shedding). The Chinese mantis
is probably the most common species of mantis used for garden pest control and is most commonly available in many parts of the country.
Originating from China, they were first introduced to North America around 1895 as a source of pest control.
The species has since naturalized itself in this country, spreading throughout much of southern New England and
the Northeast United States and is available in many other
parts of the country.
Chinese Juvenile Mantis
* These juveniles are currently L3, meaning they have molted twice so far.
* We will send you 2 praying mantises for each 1 you order. In case one dies during shipment, you'll still have the one you ordered. Both will
likely make it, so you'll have double the fun!
IMPORTANT: This offer does not apply to the
12 Sale we sometimes run (12 is the number you will receive) or the Kits with Live Mantids (2 is the number you will receive).
* Please note: Praying mantids must be consistently fed, misted and taken proper care of. While we do guarantee live delivery under
most situations (please read our live guarantee here), we do not
guarantee that the mantids will continue to live once out of our care and control. But don't worry, as long as you follow
the directions, they should be just fine.
