At a room temperature of 67 - 78 degrees, Praying Mantis hatch in 3 to 6 weeks.

    A rating of Green Earth Praying Mantis Kit
    Posted 7/28/2011 by Melissa

    I was deceived! I thought that this "kit" also included the live mantids. You should make it clear that this is ONLY the house and to order the insects somewhere else.

    As much as we love mantises, they wouldn't do well in our warehouse. Please view the subtle bold print within this item's description. We contacted our customer with the option of return. Please visit the Returns & Exchanges center if any product doesn't house 100% satisfaction.

    Its a project in process ...
    Posted 5/13/2011 by Jorge Torrens

    The housing is excellant for the purpose of keeping the little mantis save and protected once they hatch. The kit is complete with everything you need and gives you just enough access to maintain them and at the same time display them to your kids. I purchased the mantis eggs on the internet and received them in a small plastic container which houses three eggs,each egg can hatch upto 200 little mantis. So far one of them has hatch and i have been feeding them every other day with small crickets dead or alive is fine. The kit came with full instructions and diagrams of how to raise and maintain the mantis, so everything is there for you to have a succesful hatch of the eggs. My son is just watching right now while i do all the work but in know time will be able to actually carry them and feed them once they are a little bigger, he is 2 1/2 .
