Praying Mantis eat pests. Last year I caught one in action nibbling up a pesky grasshopper. I quietly cheered him on and told him to come back with friends as my garden is FULL of the pesky hoppers. The other day, I walked in to find this pious friend on my patty pan plant. I hope I get to see lots more of Mr. Mantis. Not only are they a garden friend, but they are hands down the coolest looking bug around.
Welcome to the Preppy Crocodile Garden. All praying mantis are welcomed and encouraged. Tell a friend!
