    I LOVE these guys! Any care tips/personal tweaks in info on them? I’m gonna ask my parents for a few new mantids for Christmas. Any ideas on what species I should get? I’m just asking around lol looking for good species to keep.

    MantisGirl13's mantids!

    Awesome mantids! I need to expand my collection a bit more.
  12. Nymphs are coming out quite rapidly now after several early birds, First mistake Ive made, the mesh Ive used on my pots is too wide and wont keep the very small flies in DOH!,  still it keeps the mantis in so could be worse. Watching the nymphs hang down is a beautiful thing to observe. still struggling getting the heat up which is annoying... AGAIN. with 5 small heaters on, i might just have to buy an oil heater and have it on all the time its getting down to freezing here again in the UK which I find annoying. I will have to re decorate my spare room. Ive had a damp problem on one wall and ive had to clean mould off it recently. Its made it worse with the temperature and the misting with the creatures and so I will have to address the problem. Ive been living in a fish tank. Still, it will be nice when ive done it,   thanks gang Ill keep you updated!

  13. Glory Glory Hallelujah!  
    Hierodula Malay Blue nymphs hatching.   Woop Woop!

      Congrats on the molt!

  19. Goated on the sticks.

  20. Ugh. I'm having really bad luck right now. Right before my male unicorn molts to adult, he dies suddenly. I have an adult female waiting for him too! 

    Then, right before I have an adult male ghost, all of my females die. My budwing ooth seems to be infertile, and my young nymphs are dropping quickly. I have no clue what's going on here, but it's not good at all.

  21. Im really sorry about that last post looking back I sounded like a real arrogant so and so. sorry Mantis Girl, sorry H, if you will have me back that would be great as i need your advice on something and a few pointers. Ive produced a fertile Malay Blue Hierodula ooth which is quite a step forward for me.

       Ive hot glued it to a mesh lid container going to keep it warm and moist but not overly wet. If I get the hatch Ill leave it for some hours then open the lid into a mesh insect cage.. using a paintbrush cup every one separately, damp kitchen roll in each cup with an open lid and fine mesh cover, each cup will have fruit flies added.  Is there anything Im missing and/or any other advice, Is this the way you do it or is there a better method?     Thanks ever so much,  Im excited but feel a little daunted about the whole operation. Cheers

  24. Hi Deshawn,

     

    It's Jenny. I have adult female Thistle, Budwing (one leg is missing but good shape otherwise), Spiny, Mega (but her raptors are messed up from a brawl). I have males too of different soecies. I have to check to see who is available that isn't breeding.

      Did you get them?

  25. I see one tiny black spiny baby. Shouldnt they all drop pretty much at once?

      Haaaa im so confused now. I dont think our thoughts are synced up. The two ooths you sent are bleph and gongy. The bleph is still cooking. 

      My spiny has produced two oothecae and the first ooth is the one that dropped only one nymph. 

      That was yesterday. Is that all I can expect, or do spinys hatch across days. 

      And yeh, your gongy ooths are "the bomb". Lots of babies. TY. 

    3. Jaywo

      Jaywo

      Ah yes, we were on different pages. I think the spinys can drop in a few days.

      @Jaywo cool thanks. I took the lone 'scout' to its own cup for feeding. Maybe we'll have a few more drop. I'll look to the second, and any subsequent ooths for more babies though. I just wouldve expected way more on the first day. None yesterday. :)

       

  26. Maybe I'm embarrassed to ask. Yet here I am. How long do male adult ghosts live? How long to incubate ghost ooths? 

    1. MantisGirl13

      MantisGirl13

      Male  ghosts live 1-2 months. Ooths incubate for a month.
