Year in Review, June 2020: Mass Mantis Transportation
So when we screened in the catio last summer, we neglected to notice the praying mantis egg case inside the porch. Luckily, our daughter used to work at an entomology lab. Here is my heroic family moving 300 or so mantids to the garden. We kept finding mantises for the rest of the summer; and they too got ferried to the yard.
