Looking into buying my first mantis, leave concerns, comments, etc.
How many melanogaster do you feed? I'm wanting to get some mantids but 400 seems a bit much. Guess I'd keep 10 and let the rest loose in my yard (strangely legal as the only place to buy mantis is gardening stores). Wouldn't expect many to survive though. We have lots of insectivores here.I had some and they were so little they did shy away from Hydei. Those actual were too “big”. Small melanogaster did the trick.
