3 mantis egg cases

Disappointed by the egg case size
May 2, 2022 | By Alex
Owner Response: Hi Alex,
It is normal for the size of the ootheca to change from season to season depending on location and weather. And of course, some species have smaller egg cases too!

60% hatch rate is not great
Apr 27, 2022 | By Lance
Owner Response: Hi Lance,
We understand your disappointment. Because Praying Mantids are wild collected, we are at the mercy of mother nature for how many actually hatch. Some do take more time than others. I wouldn't give up yet!

10 cases 0 mantids
Apr 23, 2022 | By Lin Hilton
Owner Response: Hi Lin,
Unfortunately because mantids are wild collected, their viability does vary and can take up to 8 weeks to hatch.

Owner Response: Hi Martha,
We try our best to stop shipping the egg cases once hatch rates begin to decrease, but it is entirely possible that ordering later in the season may have impacted the viability. If you have concerns, we encourage you to call us at 1-800-827-2847 or email us at email@example.com. If needed, we can refund or reship you based on the circumstances.

Owner Response: Hello Stanley,
We encourage you to call if you have viability issues with our beneficial insects. Our customer service can be reached at 1-800-827-2847. Praying mantid egg cases can vary in the quantity of eggs in each and hatch rates, but we are happy to discuss best practices for hatching them out and problem solve with you going forward.

Hard to find in this area.
Apr 15, 2018 | By Dave B
Owner Response: Hi Dave! The praying mantids are adapted to overwinter in places where there are harsh winters, so they should be just fine even with the cold temperatures. We recommend that you hatch them out indoors this year in order to keep them in a stable temperature. You can put them in a covered jar or tupperware container. Hatching can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks.
Apr 5, 2018 | By KEN KELLER
Owner Response: Hi, It looks like the egg cases were delivered less than 2 weeks ago. It may take 6 weeks or so for some of the praying mantid egg cases to hatch!
Feb 22, 2018 | By JoElla
Owner Response: Hello JoElla,
I apologize for any misunderstanding, but unless there is a note or statement requesting a shipping delay we will ship product at the earliest opportunity. The egg cases should be fine, kept in a refrigerator, until you are ready to hatch them.
I hope that this is helpful, please do not hesitate to contact me for further information.
