Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time and money! Purchased the egg clutch at the beginning of March and received a few weeks later. We've followed the directions exactly, misting daily, correct temp., etc., and still it has yet to hatch as I write this in mid August. I had called customer service once, probably about a month ago, and was told to just give it more time. Seriously?! They were supposed to hatch in 8-10 weeks and it's been double that! Highly unsatisfied with product and customer service on this one!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from three egg sacks have now failed to hatch! I LOVED this product, but three egg cases have yet to hatch. When all his classmates noted their "pets," my kindergartener listed his "pet" to be a praying mantis. We've asked if he wants a dog or cat but his answer is "no" because he's going to have a praying mantis. So I ordered a THIRD EGG CASE, and this time, not per the instructions, but per another friend's experience, I hung It from a twig in the Mantis Mansion and I spray every/every other day. Still NO PRAYING MANTISES!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Praying Mantis Egg Kit Coming from a biological supplier, I was thrilled when I ordered the Praying Mantis Egg kit. My daughter is four and received a Praying Mantis habitat for Christmas. She is very excited about watching her Manti hatch. She also enjoys watching the fruit flies that came with the kit to feed the juvenile Manti after they hatch. I was a little disappointed in the amount of dead fruit flies the kit contained when we got it in the mail. It almost seemed like there were many more that were dead than alive. Overall, I would still give it a "good" rating. It is a great value for the price, and great for educational purposes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lots of babies hatched My kids had a lot of fun watching and preparing for the baby praying mantises. When they hatched earlier then expected the joy was heard all of the neighborhood. The one thing was we don't have enough fruit flies and will have to order more to make it last long enough for the little guys. I separated them into groups of 30-50 baby mantises and have 5 groups so we definitely got the higher amount in our egg case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Praying Mantis Eggs and Food We received the Praying Mantis egg case and food, and were pleased with it, except for one issue. The Mantid eggs say they will hatch in about 6 weeks. We received one vile of living flies for food that it said will last about 2 weeks, and a second vile to put some flies into for breeding that will last another 2 weeks. That means the food will only last 4 weeks, and be gone 2 weeks BEFORE the mantids hatch.
