Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nymphs Hatched in Three Weeks This product worked just as I hoped. My son and I did it at home. We used sticks in the enclosure and hung the egg case. We missed the hatching and all of a sudden had about 50 mantises in the enclosure. The fruit flies lived through hatching. This couldn't have been easier. Thanks!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed. We ordered the Praying Mantis kit weeks ago, but were told it was back ordered and won't be here for months. My son wanted it to complete a scout project. If something can't be shipped for three months to five months, it should be taken off the site, or at least show in the description that it is currently not available. They had no problem taking money out of my bank account right away, though. So they have my money, but we have nothing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ordering Period is Limited The Praying Mantis Eggs are only usually only available for a limited time during the year, December to March, maybe longer. The staff of the company is excellent and give you detailed information about the product and its' availability. I would reccomend ordering over the phone as opposed to online to get the most accurate, up to date information. The kit includes an outstanding poster that provides excellent direction and information. Biologists/Naturalists are available by phone to provide additional help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I gave Value of the Price 5 stars - However, I thought shipping was too high! I did this a few years ago with my son and it was not as expensive to ship and the enclosure was a bit cheaper this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating to watch This kit is wonderful! Everyone who has seen the kit wants to know where they can purchase one. The children are eager each day to see what is going on with the Mantis. They were a little confused and perhaps horrified by the praying mantis eating each other but the explanation itself served as a lesson about the animal kingdom as well as life itself. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Praying Mantis We purchased the praying mantis kit last year for my daughters 6th birthday and a few weeks later they hatched! It was incredible to see 100-125 baby mantis per egg. Tip* Have the flightless fruit flies ready to go before the eggs hatch.
