    Male Mantis Mating Rituals

    I just noticed this after all these years, but the male mantis crossed his antennae into a loop and would occasionally tap the back of the female mantis in quick succession. Has anyone seen this before?

    Selling L3-L4 Stagmomantis Limbata

    I’ve got 50+ California mantises for sale which I believe to be Stagmomantis limbata - they were hatched from an oothecae around December. I found them out in a neighbors garden. Local pickup preferred in Los Angeles.

    Talk about neglect

    Too Hot for Creos?

    I noticed you mentioned that you didn't do much with the ooths after they were laid. Does that mean they do not have to go through diapause?

    Why does cricket use get a bad rap.

    Do crickets generally smell worse than cockroaches too? It's hard to find a supplier of bb flies near the west coast. I'm wary of having them shipped from the east coast, especially now with the warmer weather. I agree that variety is best..but say we dust our feeders, would that make up for...
