Hi guys, so i received my Spiny Flower mantis yesterday with my fruitflies culture. Managed to feed my mantis 3 flys and this morning ive woke up to all the flys dead and theres just the pupae and maggots left. Can i feed these to my mantis or do i need to buy new fruitflies?

bug-cats or cat-bugs? That is the real question.

You probably need to buy a new culture and then start making your own cultures just in case. You can feed the maggots to the nymph in the mean time while you wait for the new culture to come in.
