    Sorry, but that seems very cruel. Why not just release them after hatching so they do not eat each other?

    As for my experience with mantids, I have never brought the eggs in to hatch, but I recently notice several small ones hanging out on my deck and porch.
    I also came across an adult of which is the first of it's species I have seen in the area. I am use to seeing Large florida mantis and Carolina Mantis, but the one I recently came across was quite large and colorful. It had blue wings and was trying to blend in (rather successfully) with the butterfly flowers in my yard.

    In the wild the eggs would have hibernated through the winter. But since I did not replicate this they hatched in the middle of winter.
