more about this product
Feed on ANY insect they can catch!
Interesting to watch and make fun greenhouse and garden "pets." Well respected in China where they are very advanced in natural pest controls. Each egg case hatches about 200 praying mantids (babies). Allow 2-8 weeks for hatching. Extra egg cases bought in January can be stored in the fridge up to Aug. 1. Shipped January 1st to August 1st only. 3 egg cases.
Create a favorable home for your Beneficials ahead of time…
Reminder-- Beneficial Insects don't tolerate most pesticides very well, so it's very important not to apply residual pesticides (such as Malathion and Sevin) for at least a month before using them. While you're waiting out this month period use soapy water sprays (such as Safers) or Stiky Traps right up to the day you let out the beneficials. Also botanical sprays (derived from Pyrethrin and Rotenone, for example) can be used with a one week wait afterwards. The small amount of time you spend creating more favorable conditions for Beneficial Insects will be well worth your while!
Shipping Note: Two day orders received by noon Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday usually ship that same day. (We do not want to delay your in route shipment over the weekend.) Thursday, Friday and weekend orders are usually shipped the following Monday, so that your bugs arrive fresh and ready to go to work!
