Q.How Many Praying Mantids Are Too Many?”

Zone 47403 | Anonymous added on August 7, 2021 | Answered

We have what seems to be an unusual number of praying mantids this year. Can you have too many of them in your garden/yard? My wife keeps praying mantids as a hobby but she does not breed them. She has so many this year that she would like to sell some of them. Does anyone buy praying mantids? Thank you.

They are beneficial and will eat a lot of insects and bugs in your yard. Mantids are commercially available but you might find a local market for them, such as a farmers market.
