A few months ago, Audrey found a praying mantis case while working in the garden. She brought it in and for the last few weeks we have been watching for the babies to emerge. On Saturday, Megan pointed and said “Look!”
We had missed most of the mantises emerging, but we were able to watch a few. We then released them onto flowers and the back porch area. Hopefully, most will survive and live to eat all the mosquitoes and other pests in the area. We would prefer them to remember that Monarch butterflies and caterpillars are off limits.
