    Hey guys,
    Anyone breeding Mantids, looking for any tips. Considering breeding them for a side dish.

    Not at the moment but not out of the picture. I'm always looking for alternate bugs to vary my lizards diets.

    I ordered the 50 egg and food kit for the horned worms they seem relatively easy. I have heard Mantis are one of the easiest to raise. We will see. =) Scrared to try Dubai 's I can just visualize all the babies escaping! Noooooo!

    I do not think it is worth breeding. I find them at garden supply stores for $10 per 500.

    Garden supply store eh... I will check around thanks for the tip. I don't doubt you but why do they sell them? I thought they were a garden nussience. And become toxic when eating tomato plants. Thanks again =)

    Mantids are not a nuisance. They eat bugs.
