Through out the spring and summer months, they shed their skins on numerous occasions. The baby praying mantis differs in coloring and can be gray, green, or even a pinkish hue. Their colors normally darken with time in order to better blend in with their environment. In fact, their camouflaged colors are so perfect other bugs have a hard time seeing them.
Praying Mantises enormous appetites and never ever seem to get hold of enough to eat. Which is good for you if you have a very active garden with lots of veggies growing. In their younger stages, they consume little caterpillars, aphids, small flies, and other soft-bodied insects. As they grow older and mature, they begin to eat much larger insects. Given lots of pesky garden bugs to eat, the Chinese types, and particularly the females, may grow to five long inches. The female will often eat the smaller male soon after mating. Mantises do not eat plant life and are are “meat eaters” also known as carnivorous, making them the perfect garden helper.
