Praying Mantids Tenodera ardefolia sinensis (Case of approx 200 eggs)

Praying Mantids Tenodera ardefolia sinensis (Case of approx 200 eggs)

Hatch Your Own!

Tenodera ardefolia sinensis, Praying Mantis, preys on most insects, mites and insect eggs. Use 10-100 egg cases per year per acre in early Spring. Hang an egg case in bushes or attach to anything 2' or more above the ground. Egg cases may be stored in the refrigerator just above freezing with slight dampness. Generally available from February-May.

Note: If you would like to see the mantid babies, place the egg case in a paper bag, fold the top and seal shut with a paper clip. Place the bag on a window sill in direct sunlight. Periodically open the bag carefully, and when you see tiny mantids inside the bag, take them outside and sprinkle them throughout the garden. Please be patient, sometimes it can take up to 8 weeks of warm weather for them to hatch.

These creatures will die if left in direct sunlight or in a rural mailbox on a hot afternoon, or in cold weather. We only guarantee viability if someone accepts and inspects the insects immediately upon delivery. You must contact us immediately upon delivery if you suspect a viability problem. Because of this, often the best address to use is a work address. If FedEx is instructed to leave the package in a cool, safe place and it’s for a short period of time, viability should not be compromised, but cannot be guaranteed. If no one is available and no instructions have been left, delivery may be re-attempted the next business day. However, viability may be compromised and will not be guaranteed.

    Excitedly waiting for them to hatch

    I will have to do an updated review when they hatch (fingers crossed they do!). We purchased this because my toddler is obsessed with praying mantis and we thought it would be a fun experiment while also benefitting our garden. He asks every single day if they've hatched.

    They hatched

    I have been buying eggs for the past 2 years from other companies and they never hatch. This year I bought them here and they hatched! I'm really pleased.

    Disappointed

    We followed the instructions and placed an egg case in each of three different areas. One each in both our greenhouses and the other in our germination shed. All three have different climates. Nothing has hatched so far. Very upset.
