I found these ladybugs hibernating in my garage...I don't know if I should use a small towel or something to cover them up when the weather turns really cold.

Baby Mantis May 06, 2009 11:34 AM

I buy Mantis egg cases from the nursery. It is facinating to see them hatch, dozens of these little guys squirming their way to freedom. They are very pale when first hatched, this guy is a few hours old.

Photo was taken in Sunnyvale, CA.

I was able to locate a nest nearby my work..... and watched them come and go.  Some always emerge and "stand guard' for a minute, then take off.  It is interesting watch as they communicate with other too.
