    Mantis Discord Server

    I've spent about $17K hosting this forum and beetleforum and roachforum the past however many years out of respect for the hobby and as a favor to my customers that support my businesses. Perhaps you'd like to pay for a banner here to advertise your forum?

    Broken forum links

    The hosting company said they could no longer support the forum being outside of the root directory, for reasons I didn't really follow up on because that (very) old landing page never made much sense anyway.  By "some," how frequent are you encountering this?  I appreciate the feedback and...

    Video: Breeding Mantises

    In this video I document the introduction of a male to a female praying mantis and describe my methodology in a play by play fashion as the situation develops, while making small corrections along the way to maximize the chances for success. Sometimes it goes much more smoothly than this...

    RoachForum & BeetleForum Down?

    The hosting company said they had server updates they did and so I simply needed to change the nameservers for the domain, once I finally had a moment to find out what the problem was. I'm sorry for the delay in fixing the problem and for not seeing the post here until now. Both of our sister...

    Mealworms vs BSFs

    Mealworms aren't a great option for mantises because they can bite the mantis and because of the thick cuticle you referred to. By BSF, I assume you also mean larvae. In my experience you mostly to hand feed (via tweezers) mantises with any sort of larva. Larvae just require a little more work...

    We're looking into the missing threads for this topic. I suspect a moderator accidentally deleted the entire thing instead of just a single post, but it's the mystery of the moment!

    What do your friends and family think?

    Great topic! I'm 42. I was interested in bugs as soon as I could go out in the backyard. My grandma used to bring bugs here to Oregon from her yard in Texas for my dead insect collection. The diversity blew my mind. My parents were always supportive. My dad built me cases for my dead insect...
