I had mantis ooths lost in the mail for two months almost during cold weather so they stayed dormant. The shipper had them in an envelope wrapped in bubble wrap. 🤦‍♂️ Would this kill the eggs inside?

Chinese go through a natural diapause anyway, so cold temps shouldn't affect the ooth negatively in any way.

It’s not the cold I was concerned about, it’s being wrapped in plastic and bubble wrap for two months in the package, and Lack of oxygen

Chinese ooths can survive a lot. It wouldn't surprise me if they are perfectly fine.
