  1. We are blessed (?) with another Praying Mantis nest this year. When they all hatched earlier, we must of had hundreds of the little critters running around!

    I have always seen Mantis' but I have never seen a nest before. I'll have to look more closely.

    Can you tell me how far off the ground they usually are. Do they like particular types of trees etc.

    Any info would be greatly interesting.

  4. Patrick, we have had them in our "woody" shrubs. They have always been about 2 feet off the ground. I never noticed anything else special about the area, but I know there are some bug specialists here, maybe they have more information.
