Last Friday was a beautiful day here in our area. I managed to work in one of my flower beds that is in desperate need of cleaning. While trimming bushes and cutting off dead flowers I started noticing Mantid egg sacs. I began counting and discovered I had many more than I originally thought. There are 21 out there in one garden alone. I have no idea how many there is in my entire yard. Obviously a lot! The sad thing is of all the ones I found only one may possibly be from the Carolina Mantid. The entire sum of the rest are Chinese mantids.
