A 50% Off discount code for bulk Melanogaster fruit flies.  The code will be added to your order and sent with the parcel.  You can use this code two times and save some money.

PLUS:

A GUARANTEE ON HATCHING!  That's correct.  We will guarantee your eggs will hatch or we will replace them at no cost to you as long as you follow our hatching instructions.

 

(The hatching process starts once we ship.)  Your mantis eggs can be hatched together.

Why coconut fiber and nylon mesh?  We raise 1000"s of praying mantis every year.  We found this the very best way to hatch out mantis.  When they hatch out the nymphs will need space.  The nylon mesh gives them the space they will need plus the nylon mesh is sterile so you won't have mold problems. Mold buildup can quickly kill mantis nymphs.  The coconut fiber holds moisture which is needed for the hatching process.

Instructions   

Your Chinese Mantis Eggs (Ootheca) will come attached to stick with coconut fiber to help maintain a proper moisture level.   

The mantis ooths should be lightly misted every other day as they need some moisture to hatch.  Do not place near a heat source that is over 80 degrees F.  Do not keep the Mantis Egg under 65 degrees F.  

Ideally the temperature should be between 75 and 80 degrees F.

The mantis nymphs will be very small when they hatch.  They will live off their egg sac for about three days. After that you will need to feed them or they will start dying off.  If you plan on raising any to adult size, we suggest you visit our store and purchase the melanogaster fruit fly starter culture kit.  If you do not want to culture fruit flies you can purchase bulk flies in 100 lot containers.  Instructions on how to keep and feed the flies to your mantis nymphs will be included with your fruit fly purchase.

If you plan on releasing the nymphs right away we suggest you wait three days then release them.  This gives them a chance to absorb their egg sac and gain strength.    

Remember to very lightly mist your mantis nymphs every day.  

Your Chinese Mantis can help to control pest insects in the green house or garden.   Together all three mantis eggs should hatch out three to four hundred nymphs. 

Shipping:   

To insure a safe trip to your home, your Chinese Mantis Eggs will be shipped with insulated wrapping.

Safe arrival:  If there is any damage in shipping, please contact us within one day with photos. 

WE DO GUARANTEE HATCHING.

We do what others don't do.....that is ... we do guarantee hatching provided you take the proper steps to ensure the hatching process goes well.  

Even though we have no control over the hatching process, we want all of our customers to be happy with their purchase.  

Therefore, if after the allotted time; your egg cases do not hatch, all we ask is that you send us a photo of the mantis egg cases cut in half so we can see inside the mantis eggs. 

This will help us with quality control.   

As you can appreciate, we cannot cover the postage on egg case replacements because of the extra costs incurred.  

Postage on replacement eggs will be the customers responsibility.

Things to keep in mind when hatching your mantis eggs:

If the mantis eggs dry out they will not hatch.  If they are placed in direct sunlight and they get too hot they will not hatch.   If they are kept too wet they will not hatch.  

Some have put the mantis eggs in the freezer thinking this would be the best way to store them until they start the hatching process; this will destroy the mantis nymphs.  

As you can appreciate many variables can affect the hatching process.

What we can assure you is that these egg cases are fresh for the 2020 season and if looked after properly, they should hatch within the allotted time frame which can be anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks.

The mantis nymphs will be very small when they hatch. 

It is best to separate them into a larger container with 2 to 3 days.  The smaller fruit fly Drosophila Melanogaster the best starter food item for your baby mantis.

You can raise mantis nymphs and sell them for a profit.  

Send us a email and we'll tell you how.

Have them as a fun school project.

Release them in your green house or garden.   They are great for pest control.
