I was innocently shopping for potting soil at Ace when I spotted the beneficial insect display. Amongst the containers of lady bugs and nematodes were the cartons of praying mantis eggs. While some may argue that other beneficial insects are more efficient, I can’t resist them. They are so alien looking and feisty. The carton actually contained two eggs and they should product between 50-200 babies. I had a few living in my mint plants last year and I’m hoping a few will resettle there this year.
