Wintering Mantis Eggs
Name: Anthony H.
Monday, September 30, 2002
I have a female praying mantis and I have her in medium
sized card board box because that is where she laid her eggs. I was
wondering, since she has laid them indoors, where should I place the box
so that the climate is suitable for the nymphs to emerge in about 3-6
months? I would also like to know if it is a problem if dust or water gets
on the packs of eggs, and if so where can I put the box to prevent it?
