Praying Mantis

Praying Mantis

I love these insects and used to take them to school with me to show the class. Always a hit. He's near the top of the insect world and he means business! He's capable of capturing small rodents and will feed on many pests and harmful bugs. He's rather shy towards people and is very beneficial to have in you garden or vegetable bed. He doesn't' want to live in a jar.

Suey187 I don't blame you. I keep a distance from them myself and just leave them alone. They do have a high "creep factor."
