It is easy to raise a praying mantis! See the following basics on receiving your manits. These are also basic instructions on how to care for your mantis. The Advanced Praying Mantis Care Information Guide is included with each live praying mantis insect purchase

The following mantids are currently sold out or reserved, please check back often as they will be listed when available

BASIC INSTRUCTIONS FOR MANTIS CARE / MANTIS AND CONTAINER PREPARATION UPON DELVIERY (This information pertains to mantids that are purchased from this website. More detailed are included in the Advanced Care Information guide ebook you will receive with your mantis purchase. The little manits will not hurt you in any way. It is most likely that you could hurt the mantis. You should be calm and pay close attention when handling your mantis to protect it. You will learn to work with the mantis and they also work with you. It is amazing how smart they are. They make just as good of a pet as dogs or cats. Mantids are very clean and they make no kind of mess. The mantis will arrive to you in a small shipping container. Do not open the small container until after you have prepared the permanent housing enclosure you have chosen to house the mantis inside. It is best to have everything ready when the mantis arrives. Everything meaning the well ventilated plastic container / screen lid or aquarium / screen lid you have chosen, a band new water only spray mist bottle and plain white non print paper towels. The permanent container should be prepared with at least one round and one flat stick mounted in at a 45 degree angle on which the mantis may perch, although the spend most of the time hanging upside down from the lid. Before placing the mantis into the permanent container, line the floor of the permanent container with a singlelayer of plain white paper towel (white paper towel only, no napkins or tissue) After placing the paper towel onto the container floor, use a spray mistbottle of purified water to spray mist the paper towel with 7 to 10 mists, allow some of the mist to coat the walls of the container. Use only purified water which is room temperature. Press the paper towel flat against the container floor it is time to open the small container and place the mantis into the large container. Notice the small strip of paper towel inside the small shipping container, the mantis will sit on top of it or may be hiding between or under the paper towel strip inside the shipping container.. Open the lid carefully, lift the small paper towel strip out of the small container while holding it over the large container, to transfer the mantis most easily, drop the strip of paper towel, mantis and all into the large container, but do what works best for you if you wish but be careful not to grasp or mash the mantis in any way. Drop the small paper towel strip and the mantis into the container and close the lid (always make sure the mantis is not at the top when you close the lid). Watch your mantis, you will see the mantis stick the face to the paper towel as they drink. Allow them to drink all they want before adding the food or handling the mantis. After the mantis is finished drinking water, add about 4 to 12 fruit flies into the container, your mantis will begin to eat soon. If you use a 32 ounce container, add only 4 or 6 fruit flies at a time once per day or every two days. If you use a larger container such as an aquarium, add about 10 or 12 fruit flies at at time once per day or every two days. Allow your mantis to drink, eat, rest and settle in before you handle the mantis.


The following pictures show you a very basic setup for housing the smaller type species' species of praying mantis. Large containers are not required. As long as the container is the same size or larger than a 32 ounce deli container as shown in the pciture below, it will work just fine
The container for this species can be a 32 ounce deli container, estimated about 6 inches tall and 5 inches around. A thin peice of wood about 6 inches long should be placed into the container at a 45 degree angle as pictured. Mount screen onto the stick. Keep the width of the stick and screen about 1.5 inches wide, no wider. Use screen to secure the wood/screen perch stable inside the container, or hot glue the perch to secure it. Nylon screen seems to work best. NOTE : Chinese mantids and B borealis Stick Mantids need larger containers. The container should always be at least twice the length of the mantis in container height and width. Never keep mantids in containers that are too small as they need room to molt.



Another view of the simple but ideal, nearly perfect container and perch for the spider mantis and other smaller mantis species'



Cut out the lid of a deli container and cover with screen using hotglue. It is simple and fun too! If you wish you may use a small aquarium or "critter keeper" from your local pet store. Each mantis must be kept in a seperate container untill it is time for them to mate. Mantids mate when fully mature, which will be about 2 weeks after the mantids develope wings when full grown

ABOUT MANTIDS EATING TABLE FOOD : If you have time to spare you can actually hand feed mantids table food! They love tender baked or fried chicken and tuna (canned in spring water or fresh, baked tender!) My favorite Bark Manits has been raised mostly on tuna and some southern fried chicken! Tuna is the favorite, baked chicken is best, but fried is fine as long as you peel the breading and spices and feed out only the meat. Holding the food upon tweezers (or on the end of a toothpick for baby mantids) and placing the food to the mantids mouth a few times will get the meal started. Some mantids eat the table food more readily than others, but all mantids will accept it if it is not cold and not too hot and you have alot of patience. Feed the table food to them at room temperature. The table food menu for my pet mantids and the mismolted mantids which need hand feeding is as follows : Small bits of chicken, fish, shrimp, hot dog, bananna, cheese, tender steak or roast (beef must be so tender it will twist to shreds with a fork very easily), cold cuts including ham, roast beef, turkey or chicken. Tuna, cold cuts, shrimp and tender cooked chicken seem to be favorite table foods for mantids. You should also supply some type of feeder insects in addition to table food. There are some times when it is best to offer them table food during certain growth phases of the mantis (you will learn all in the manits care guide provided with your mantis) The first feeder insects are bought in cultures that yield high numbers of feeder insects. Crickets are very inexpensive and are the main food for larger and adult mantids. Praying mantis insects make great pets! I offer only captive bred mantids and release many of each U.S. Native species into the specific regions of the United States to which the mantids are regionally native. There are about 20 species of mantis insects that are native to the United States! All mantids offered at this site are legal to own in the U.S. and will be shipped only to the United States.

All of the mantids offered on this site are very friendly captive bred mantids!
