I just found out that I can buy a case of Preying Mantis eggs for only $8.00. That $8.00 case of eggs is supposed to hatch into 200 preying mantis' in the spring. I've read that they are great for the control of mosquito's and flies. Most importantly though, I happen to know first hand that they are great for controlling and amusing children.
My case in point:
Which got me thinking. It's very smart indeed to fill my yard with lizards and snails and preying mantis's. The snails and lizards are already covered. But the other? I'm thinking $8.00 is a pretty fair price for a little amusement and peace. Don't you?
