By eating bugs the Praying mantis is an amazing friend to farmers and gardeners alike. With this kit, you can set up a special habitat and order 50-100 eggs ($6.95 is required for shipping and handling) to hatch, nurture, study, and grow into adult insects to release into the environment.
Comments about Product: The praying mantis house was well made.No escapees. The packet was full of information about manitis(s?)! The "journal" isn't as extensive as I had hoped. As long as a giver realizes that eggs must be ordered from a different source and on a different time frame, no problem. Eggs hatch in about six weeks so food must also be purchased later. My neighbor girl LOVED this present.
