  1. My spikes are hitting 4 to 5 weeks, and ill be tapping into the last 250 of 1000. This weekend. I figure I have fed at least 300 spikes by hand (not really by hand  as with most, I just laid spikes out and the mantises just pluck them up).

    I figure ive mismanaged about 250 spikes experimenting. Oh well. Theyd have died as prey anyway. LoL.

    I have about 250 in process currently. So far, pupates are eclosing in 1 to 2 weeks at room temperature. Light misting is a must for me here or they just dry out.

    Hopefully the last batch still produces. I took the last cup out for warmth and air, and theyre still wiggling with vigor.

    Should I feed these spikes some mush, or pupate them all at once? Or keep batching them out in cups?
