Praying Mantis

These little guys just broke out of their nests and are a very important part of our greenhouse.  Like the ladybug, they eat aphids.  After leaving their nest as seen below, they just hang out for awhile to let their exoskeleton harden.  Then they'll get to work.  Hope you enjoy H.G.'s real time video at the bottom. 

Empty Sack


  
Look at the sack at the bottom of the picture to the left.  Can you see them all coming out of the sack and climbing up the fig tree? H.G. got this shot right as they were coming out. 

"Hey, move over, I want to get up there."

 Looking forward to seeing you all....
