WE DO GUARANTEE HATCHING FOR ONE EGG ONLY

We do what others don't do.....that is we do guarantee hatching of one egg.  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.  We will send one replacement.  As you can appreciate, we cannot cover the postage on egg case replacements because of the extra costs incurred.

Things to keep in mind when hatching your egg case:

If the egg drys out it will not hatch.  If it is placed in direct sunlight and gets too hot it will not hatch.   If it is kept too wet it will not hatch.  Some have put the egg case in a freezer thinking this would be the best way to store them until they hatch; that 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 2019 and if looked after properly, it should hatch within the allotted time frame which can be anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks.

The mantis babies will be very small when they hatch.  It is best to separate them into a larger container with 2 to 3 days.  Please contact us for suggestions.   The smaller fruit fly Drosophila Melanogaster the best starter food item for your baby mantis.

When your mantis are at the L-3 stage they will need a larger fruit fly item.  

The Drosophila Hydei is a good choice for a larger food item.

We suggest you purchase the fruit flies or fruit fly kits at the same time you purchase your praying mantis egg kit.  This way you will have fruit flies on hand when the mantis hatch.  This will give you enough time to re-culture the fruit flies giving you 3 to 4 times the amount you started with.
