  • praying mantis for grow kit

    Created by Jeff Nolan on

    Hello, Our son has a praying mantis grow kit. We are ordering the eggs for the mantis, but was wondering what to feed them and where to get their food? These will be kept inside for a while to watch them grow, so don’t want the mantis’ to die off. Thanks.

    Jeff –

    Because mantis are cannabalistic we prefer that they be set free shortly after hatching. With that said, they can be fed fruit flies or small crickets when young. Adults will eat just about anything, including hamburger!
