Be Nice to the Praying Mantis

Recently, I found a praying mantis in plain sight sunbathing on a zucchini leaf.

If you ever see a praying mantis, you might be tempted to say “Eww a bug!” However, you will want to be nice to the praying mantis. What does a praying mantis eat? Other bugs. It is a hunter. So, similar to spiders, it is a good influence on your garden and you should leave it be.

Praying Mantises were considered by several ancient civilizations to have supernatural powers. They have been revered. And I like that they’re always praying. 😉
