Re: id help please


You haven't lived until you've tried to escort a few hundred Praying Mantis
babes out of your greenhouse.

I had an egg case that someone brought to me for an ID. I popped the stem
into a pot in my greenhouse, never dreaming they'd all hatch at once.

I took a short lunch break and came back to what seemed like the Earth's
entire population of Praying Mantises trying to exit my greenhouse.

They were everywhere. On the fans, on me, on the benches, on the walls. When
they got hungry, the nearest sib was lunch. They're sight hunters, as you
probably know. That means they left the yummy aphids and such to chow down
on their relatives. Sigh.
