What do I do? I don't have any live insects to feed it and this isn't one of those big, large preying mantises. This thing is like a centimeter long. I think it likes me.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it was meant to be. If it doesn't...

hunt it down and kill it.

Put it in the yard.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 3:00:33 PM EDT
you got ripped off

Our local nursery has the egg cases for sale. You can get 200 mantises for $5. They are good for the garden and fun to watch.

Get a wheel bug next time....they're cooler.

Let me clarify. I purchased the insect from a childhood friend, someone I used to babysit. She needed money for a school trip and to raise money they're selling mantises. Well, I just set it free. We had a bond, me and this little insect. I will miss it.

First of all, everyone here who is giving you crap about wasting 3 dollars is probably willing to lie and say they never wasted 3 bucks on anything dumber. I'd take it and turn it loose in the fanciest place to eat in town
just to see what happens
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 3:13:44 PM EDT
I think their cool little animals. I have no clue how'd you feed it... sooo I guess setting it free wasn't a bad idea....

Is it illegal to kill a praying mantis?
No. Praying mantises are common insects and are not protected by law in Pennsylvania.


charge someone 6 bucks to murder it

You should have kept it and fed it small crickets from the pet store. They are amazing bugs.

IM me this summer, and I'll sell you a 4 inch one for $300. plus shipping.

Did it come with the fries and a coke, or just napkins?






Link Posted: 3/27/2009 4:39:09 PM EDT
For $3 it should be big enough to rape.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 4:39:30 PM EDT
Hey !! For another 3 bucks I am sure that I can round up a few Florida cockroaches for you to feed it.

too bad it wasnt a box of rape

I keep one every year. I keep it in a cheap 10 gallon fishtank with a screen top.

Spray water on it once a day and keep some bugs in there with it.

Its pretty cool to see them stalk their prey.

I had a mantis over 6 inches long fly into my truck. It was free.

My daughter was young at the time and still talks about it. And, NO, it wasn't because I screamed like a little girl.

The thing was fricken huge!
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 4:55:24 PM EDT
Ummm.....you know you could have gone outside and gotten one for free....right?

Get another one and fight them, like Enter the Dragon. The next best thing to dog fighting.
