Playing with Praying Mantis


I became a big nerd when watching the Praying Mantis in my backyard. I had one in my mint plants and another by my Black Eyed Susans. Toward the end of summer, they appeared in large amounts in my basil plants. The Thai Basil was especially popular, it was like Vegas with constant hooks ups. They seem to be disappearing with the arrival of the cooler temperatures. But, I did spot one on the eggplant, yesterday.


I’m not sure but this could be a Praying Mantis egg or maybe it’s moths. We shall see.
Friend or Foe?
